Are you struggling to keep your home cool during the summer? If so, we may be able to assist you through the Senior Cool Care Program. Senior Cool Care provides single room air conditioners or fans to income-eligible seniors who need help cooling their homes. It is funded by Dominion Energy and administered through the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS).
You may qualify if:
- You are a Virginia resident living in the Senior Services coverage area of Norfolk, Portsmouth, Virginia Beach, Suffolk, Chesapeake, Franklin, Isle of Wight, and Southampton County,
- At or below 150% of the poverty level, and
- Age 60 or older
This program runs June 1 through the last working day of September. Keep in mind, the fans and air conditioners are issued on a first-come basis while funding lasts.
