Apply for LEAP with United Way Simcoe Muskoka

Apply over the Phone

The most common way to apply is by calling the UWSM office and speaking with a Customer Service Representative (CSR). You may call our Toll-Free number 1-855-487-5327 and speak to one of our CSRs who will be able to assist you in starting your application over the phone. This pre-screen phone call usually takes about 8-10 minutes and you will be required to provide the following information:

  • Your utility name, account number, passed due account balance, and whether or not you have received a disconnection notice
  • Monthly income details for yourself and everyone else who lives in your home who is over the age of 18
  • Details about your home; housing type, rent vs. own, and primary heating source

If you qualify during the pre-screen phone call the CSR will provide you with information regarding the next steps in the application. These steps include you providing documentation that supports the information you have provided over the phone. You can provide this information to UWSM by meeting with a representative at one of the Intake Agencies we work with located in your community. If there is no Intake Agency in your community the CSR will provide you with information about sending your documents directly to UWSM instead.
