Cooling Assistance Program

The goal of this progam is to provide a cooled living space for someone in the household with a medical need.  Medical documentation is required. A household that has someone with a medical need may qualify for a cooling device. If there is a household member 60 years of age or older medical documentation is not needed.  Funding for this program varies each year. 

Assistance with a cooling device or assistance in getting their existing central air system repaired or replaced may be provided.  There is a limit on assistance with central air systems.

All households need to be income & asset eligible through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) at your local social service office.  The cooling program is a seasonal program.
