You can apply for cooling assistance to buy and install an air condition or a fan for your home. Your household is allowed one or the other, and the price cannot be more than $800 with installation. Like HEAP funding, cooling assistance funds are limited and are distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis.
You must be a U.S. citizen or a qualified alien with a documented medical condition that is aggravated by heat. You must also meet certain income guidelines. Review additional requirements to determine if you’re eligible to apply.
You cannot apply online. To apply contact your HEAP Local District Contact.
