There's a program available for people who need help with their energy bills.

Receiving benefits from the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program is as easy as filling out the application. Applications are available Nov. 1 at the Mesa County Department of Human Services.

Karen Martsolf with the Department of Human Services says it's not hard to qualify. "For example, a family of four can make just over $3,000 gross monthly income and still qualify for these benefits."

Once you're approved the money is given to your electric provider and they will credit your account for that amount.

Also, you may be able to qualify for the Crisis Intervention Program in addition to LEAP. Through the Crisis Intervention Program, you may receive funding to fix or replace furnaces or old, drafty windows.
