Summer Crisis Cooling (SCP)
Between July and August each year, CAC operates the Summer Crisis Cooling Program, or Summer HEAP. Regulations for this program may vary slightly from year to year. Under this program, any individual over 60 or with a respiratory condition may receive a one-time payment on their electric bill, and may be eligible for a new window air conditioner and/or fans. All applicants must also meet income guidelines. Contact CAC for more information at 330-297-1456 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
This season's Summer Crisis Program has been expanded to assist the community in managing the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. SCP will be available July 1st through September 30th.
This year's benefits include electric bill payments, window a/c units, fans, and a/c repair for central air. Each household's benefit can be up to $500.00, and they will be eligible for a combination of these benefits based on household needs and eligibility.
