Ohio Summer Crisis Program Starts July 1

June 23, 2017 – The Ohio Development Services Agency and local Community Action Agencies will help income-eligible Ohioans stay cool during the hot summer months. The Home Energy Assistance Summer Crisis Program provides income-eligible customers with electric bill assistance or assistance paying for central air conditioning repairs. The crisis program runs from July 1 through August 31.

“July and August can be two extremely hot months in Ohio, and that can take a toll on older Ohioans and Ohioans with breathing conditions,” said David Goodman, director of the Ohio Development Services Agency.

The Summer Crisis Program assists low-income households with an older household member (60 years or older), or households that can provide physical documentation that cooling assistance is needed for a household member’s health. Conditions include lung disease, Chronic-Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or asthma.
