Income-Qualified Assistance Program (IQAP)#

Fort Collins Utilities partners with the Colorado Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) to save you money on your utility bill so you can focus on other critical expenses. IQAP is a reduced electric, water and/or wastewater rate that provides 25% off certain components of these services.

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. You must make 60% or less of the State Median Income to qualify for LEAP and IQAP. You can also benefit from money-saving opportunities beyond the reduced rate through free home efficiency and educational activities.


Step 1: Apply for LEAP

LEAP acceptance qualifies you for IQAP, as long as your household has active Fort Collins Utilities service(s). LEAP applications are accepted Nov. 1 – April 30.
