Cooling Assistance Program

The Cooling Assistance Program provides a limited number of air conditioners for people who have a medical condition that is made worse by heat.

The air conditioners will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible applicants.

Applications will be available starting May 1, 2018, and be accepted until the program’s funding runs out. You can request that an application be mailed to you.
To be eligible for the Cooling Assistance Program, your household:

  • must meet HEAP income guidelines and
  • must have at least 1 household member who suffers from a heat-related health problem, documented by a doctor.

You are not eligible if:

  • you have a working air conditioner that is less than 5 years old or
  • your household received an air conditioner from the Cooling Assistance Program within the past 10 years.
