Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP)

LEAP is a year-round program to assist-low income customers with their bill payments and electricity costs. LEAP is a grant program that provides emergency relief to eligible low-income households who meat the eligibility criteria.



The grant is available to those low-income households who have:

  • Recently received a ‘past due’ Toronto Hydro bill and/or;

  • Recently received a ‘disconnection notice’ from Toronto Hydro


Your household income falls below a certain limit. The amount of income it takes to qualify depends on two factors:

  • How many people live in the house

  • Your combined household income
