If you applied for LEAP but were not eligible, or you still need help, apply to EOC any time of the year. You can only apply once per season (10/1 through 9/30), including when LEAP isn’t taking applications. EOC funds are distributed to limited-income households through community agencies which accept applications and approve bill payments. EOC does not accept applications directly.
You are eligible if…
- you need help paying your electric or natural gas bill to an energy provider
- you haven’t received help from EOC during the current season
- you applied to LEAP but didn’t qualify or you need additional help
- you need help when LEAP is not taking applications (5/1-10/31)
