Crown Heights Jewish Community Council offering free air conditioners

Free air conditioners are available to Brooklyn residents with medical conditions.

The Crown Heights Jewish Community Cooling Program is offering free air conditioners for low-income disabled, elderly and sick residents with medical conditions that put them at risk during the hot weather.

Units are available on a first-come first-served basis and will be installed at no charge. To apply you must bring a doctor’s letter stating there is a medical need for an air condition.

Applicants must also submit proof of income for one month or a current receipt of HEAP, PA, SSI or SNAP, a valid ID, proof of address and a social security card. Applicants cannot already own an air conditioner or have received one through the program in the past five years.

Call Bella at Crown Heights JCC at 718-771-9000 ext. 7701 for more information and an application package.
