With rising temperatures come rising electricity costs and soon, Oklahomans can get help beating the heat.

The Department of Human Services will begin taking applications Tuesday to help low-income households pay their cooling bills this summer, thanks to $16 million in aid from the federal

government.

Eligibility is based on household income, with a maximum of $1,024 in net monthly income for a one-person household and up to $3,565 in net monthly income for an eight-person household.

The anticipated benefit amounts are $120 for a one-person household, while a household of two or more may receive $180.  

To apply for Summer Cooling Assistance, contact your local OKDHS Human Services Center.
