- The LEAP sponsored by Colorado Department of Human Services is seeking a part time project Manager for the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) is a federally funded program within the Colorado Department of Human Services, Office of Economic Security, which helps pay a portion of program participants winter home heating costs thereby alleviating some of the financial burden associated with the colder months.
- The program’s primary functions are to perform case, eligibility and benefit management. Pay out is done through home heating bill assistance payments made to utility companies for energy supplied to participating households or in a minority of cases, directly to the participating households.
- The program has a state-level office for program administration and each of Colorado’s 64 counties is responsible for processing their respective county’s LEAP applications. One of the state office’s primary responsibilities is to administer and maintain the LEAP computer system.
- The system was deployed in the early 1980s and is one of the last applications running on the state’s legacy mainframe system. The LEAP program is being evaluated by exploring the options available for migrating to a platform that will meet the programs administration needs as well as leveraging the capabilities of a state-of-the-art software solution. The new platform will enable the LEAP program to be administered more efficiently and simplify the application and approval process.
- The new system will allow for intake of client application data; determination of eligibility; distribution of benefits to an electronic transfer system; interface with energy vendors; noticing to clients; and reporting for State and County program staff.

- Lead the effort for ensuring agency compliance with the State’s project management policies and standards.
