Indiana CAA Offers Summer Cooling Assistance Starting June 18
June 15, 2018 – Indiana’s PACE Community Action Agency, Inc. will be accepting applications for their Summer Cool Program starting June 18. Indiana residents who received heating assistance during the winter season do not need to reapply for assistance. Their cooling benefit amount, a one-time $210 payment, will be applied to the electric account already on file.
Susan Laughlin, Community Services Manager, said, “As part of the Energy Assistance Program, we also offer an education component in order to provide our clients with practices to use in their home to decrease their energy usage and lower their utility bills.”
Air conditioners are also available for households that meet the program guidelines. To qualify for an air conditioner, the household must be in one of the four at-risk categories to qualify. These categories include elderly, disabled, veteran or a child age five and under. The household’s utility status must also be in “good standing,” with no disconnect notices.
