LEAP begins this week, with applications being taken in the state's 63 county departments of social services. Ruben Valdez, Social Services executive director, will kick off the new program by talking to senior citizens at Denver's Southwest Community Center. Valdez said his department is going to pay particular atten- tion to handicapped and older Coloradans, to let them know about the program, and to help them apply. LEAP helps low income families pay some of their heating costs. Although the application process begins this week, per- sons can apply through Feb. 27 and receive the same benefit. Valdez encourages applicants to apply at their convenience, during this period. Funds will not run out- available funds will be distributed to eligible households, based on their income, fuel type, and climate zone. Those eligible may be public assistance recipients, and others whose income falls within certain limits, as long as they are af- fected by the rising costs of energy. Income limits are: Household Size Monthly Income 1 $398 2 522 3 648 4 776 Persons applying for LEAP should supply proof of income, and a stub from their heating bill, if available. Payments will be made in two installments, in the winter and early spring, either to the recipient, or tothe vendor in his behalf. Valdez, who es- timates the average total LEAP benefit to range from $200 to $300, urges LEAP recipients to keep up with their utility bills, to avoid shut-offs when the program ceases. Information about the program in Lincoln County may be ob- tained by contacting the Department of Social Services, at the courthouse in Hugo, or by calling 743-2404, 1-800-332-9289 or 1-800-332-6730. onlookers, on HUGO, Co.2 waiting tor results. @ mon A hearing has been set for J anuary, on the application by four people to establish a new bank in Limon.
