Cooling assistance program offered in North Dakota
MINOT, N.D. – We’ve seen some recent temperatures reach record-setting highs, but there is good news for those struggling with access to air conditioning.
The North Dakota Department of Human Services announced it will help lower-income households through a cooling assistance program.
It helps qualified residents to install or repair their air conditioning unit or purchase a fan.
Last year, nearly 200 residents relied on the program.
“The cooling assistance helps qualifying low-income North Dakotans that have a medical need requiring them to have a cooled living space,” said ND DHS Economic Assistance Division Robin Addington.
The program will run through September.
