Who qualifies for Low-Income Energy Assistance program (LEAP)?

LEAP (Low-Income Energy Assistance program) is designed for low-income families and individuals living at/or below the poverty line who have exhausted all other sources of financial support.  Approved households receive a one time grant.

  • Have energy bills that are currently in arrears;
  • Have recently received a disconnection notice;
  • Are experiencing personal circumstances that make it difficult to pay current energy bill.
