Keeping seniors cool this summer

Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division is donating 200 window air-conditioning units to qualified low-income seniors and disabled residents of Shelby County.
 
A screening and application process for the free units will be hosted by Neighborhood Christian Center on May 10.

To qualify applicants must be a resident of Shelby County, a low income senior 60 years of age or older, and without operable air conditioning. Once an individual is screened and pre-qualifies, a pre-qualification voucher will be issued to verify that the applicant has met the guidelines up to the field inspection. Field inspections will be conducted by MLGW to verify that the residence meets installation requirements. Households are only eligible to receive an air conditioner once every three years from the MLGW Play It Cool Program.
 
Air conditioners will not be installed at addresses with operating units, or on residences with bars or storm windows. MLGW field inspections will begin in late May and the installation of units will be performed by MLGW employees starting in June.
