Cooling Assistance Program
The Department of Social Services will be accepting applications for the Cooling Assistance Program from June 15, 2018 through August 15, 2018. This program is income-based and you may qualify for the program if someone living in the household is under age six, age sixty or older, or receiving disability. This program can help with the purchase of a fan, ceiling fan, attic or whole house fan, or an air conditioner. It can help with the repair of central air conditioning/heat pump, or one installed fan. If qualified, the program can help with a one-time payment of an Electric Security Deposit, or payment of an unpaid electric bill. You may apply at your local Department of Social Services for the Cooling Assistance Program, or call the DSS Call Center at 855-635-4370, or apply online at www.commonhelp.virginia.gov.
