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.

Step 1: Apply for LEAP

Households that receive LEAP this winter also may be eligible for Fort Collins Utilities’ Income-Qualified Assistance Program (IQAP). LEAP Applications Accepted: Nov. 1 – April 30. Approval of application can take 30 days or more.
