Fan Care Program

  

 

Many older persons without a cooling system find themselves in emergency situations during hot summer days and nights.  Mountain Empire Older Citizens (MEOC) may be able to help.  MEOC's FanCare program begins on July 1 and ends on September 30 each year.  MEOC distributes a limited number of fans and air conditioners to eligible older persons in need during summer months.

To qualify, a person must be sixty (60) years of age or older, have a situation at home that threatens health and have an adjusted gross income of at or below 150% of the federal poverty level (1 person, $1,485; 2 persons, $2,003).  All incomes of persons in the household must be counted.

This program is sponsored by Dominion Virginia Power and administered by the Virginia Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services.

If you have an emergency cooling need and are interested in applying for a fan or air conditioner, please call Rachel Helton at 276-523-4202 or 1-800-252-6362.
