Energy Bill Assistance

We can help you keep the lights on in your home thanks to a great program through Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC). If you’ve received a late notice or a threat of disconnection, we can pay your overdue electric bill. This program is good once per year per household and can provide up to $1000 of relief.

Energy Assistance in Denver


Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (also known as food stamps)

Are you enrolled in SNAP? If not, YOU MAY SIGN UP TODAY for SNAP benefits with us to help feed your family. If you are eligible, you will receive benefits on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card which works just like a debit card. Benefits are automatically loaded into your account each month and you may then use your EBT card at our market or other authorized food stores.

SNAP benefits may be used to buy:

  • SNAP Benefits in Denver

    Breads and cereals

  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Meat, fish and poultry
  • Dairy products
  • Seeds and plants which produce food for the household to eat

Double Bucks

It’s easy to get started and if you are on SNAP, you are eligible for Double Up. When you use your EBT card, Double Up matches your purchases dollar for dollar up to $20 a day that can be used on fruit and vegetables. That means your SNAP dollars go twice as far. Double Up provides access to healthy food for Coloradoans, support for farmers and investment in local communities. A win-win in all ways.
