Low-income Energy Assistance Program / LEAP / Facing Disconnection/ Electricity / Ontario Government
The Ontario Government has a program to provide one-time support for low-income customers who are in arrears on their energy bills and facing disconnection of their electricity service. The program is called the Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP). Low-income customers can get up to $500 in emergency assistance for their electricity bills ($600 if your home is heated electrically) and $500 for their natural gas bills. The assistance is only available if you are behind on your bill – or in arrears – and may face having your service disconnected. You cannot receive more money than you owe on your bill.Therefore, you may not receive the full amount of the grant. The 2 Factors To Qualify are How many people live in the house and Your combined After-Tax household income. Emergency financial assistance is for emergency situations only and is not meant to provide you with ongoing help to pay your bills. You will likely have to meet with a representative of the social agency for an interview.
