Income-Qualified Assistance Program (IQAP)#

Fort Collins Utilities partners with the Colorado Low-income Energy Assistance Program (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 also can benefit from money-saving opportunities beyond the reduced rate through free home efficiency and educational activities that take only about two hours of your time per year.

Step 1: Apply for LEAP

Households with active Fort Collins Utilities service(s) that receive LEAP this winter are eligible for IQAP. LEAP applications are accepted Nov. 1 – April 30.
