Income-Qualified Assistance Program (IQAP)

Fort Collins Utilities partners with LEAP to save you more money on your utility bill. IQAP is a reduced electric, water and/or wastewater rate that provides 23% off certain components of these services.

Leap Into More Savings

Happy family in front of house

You may qualify for IQAP if you received LEAP during the previous or current season and live in a household with an eligible Fort Collins Utilities electric, water and/or wastewater account.

IQAP lowers your utility bill so you can focus on other critical expenses. 

You can benefit from money-saving opportunities beyond the reduced rate through free home efficiency and educational activities by dedicating about two hours of your time a year. 

Once your application is approved, the IQAP rate will go into effect within four to eight weeks, based on your bill cycle.

Apply for LEAP Nov. 1 – April 30

Households that receive LEAP this winter also may be eligible for Fort Collins Utilities’ Income-Qualified Assistance Program (IQAP)
