Emergency Cooling Assistance Available| 7/19/2012
To qualify, you need a signed statement from a doctor, physicians assistant, nurse practitioner or public health nurse verifying your medical condition and the need for a cool living space. If you`re not currently receiving energy assistance you can contact your county social service office to see if you meet the financial guidelines.
The Department of Human Services has set aside $57,000 for the program. The funds will be used to install window air conditioners, repair air conditioning units and to purchase oscillating and window fans.
