air-conditoningAs the temperature continues to hover around 90 degrees (and it's still early June!), the City of Cleveland has reintroduced its assistance program for low-income families with a member that's at least 60 years old.

The program, administered by the Council of Economic Opportunies for Greater Cleveland (CDOGC), gives qualified applicants up to $100 to spend towards a new air conditioner or fan or to help with their electric bill. The program begins on July 1 and runs through August 31.

To qualify, Cleveland residents must meet the following income requirements:
  • Household of one 18,200 a year or $1,517 a month
  • Household of two $24,500 or $2,042 a month
  • Household of three $30,800 or $2,567 a month
  • Household of four $37,100 or $3,092 a month
In addition, you must not have received assistance under this program within the last three years.

To call for an appointment, dial 216-518-4014.
