GOOD MORNING DELMAREVA - Summer's just around the corner and in Delaware it can get pretty HOT!  

First State Community Action Agency is offering cooling relief by providing energy-efficient air conditioners to eligible low-income households in Kent and Sussex County Delaware through its Summer Cooling Assistance Program (SCAP). Residents can now apply by appointment to see if they qualify to have an energy-efficient AC installed in their home.

This program operates during the months of June-September and helps to cool homes with a room sized air conditioning unit during the hot, humid summer months.   Eligible households in Kent and Sussex County may receive an energy-efficient, window unit. 

Goal:

Our goal is to ensure the health and safety of low-income residents, especially households with small children, elderly persons, persons with disabilities, and individuals with medical conditions which are aggravated/worsened by the heat.  

We take the opportunity to educate each recipient about their unit and how to operate it properly to promote cost-savings and optimal results.

To be eligible, households must meet certain income eligibility guidelines.  Applicants must be at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
