New York: Keeping it Cool!

During the hot summer months, New York state used a portion of its LIHEAP funding to help low-income residents with documented medical needs keep their homes at a healthy temperature.  Prolonged exposure to very high indoor temperatures is a health risk that disproportionately affects those already suffering from medical ailments.  New York State Homes and Community Renewal installed more than 3,200 window air conditioner units, helping to keep some of New York’s most vulnerable people healthy and safe during summer heat waves.
