Assistance may be available for air conditioning repair services.

The summer heat is showing no signs of easing anytime soon. Fort Worth’s Community Action Partners reminds Tarrant County residents that help is available to stay cool during the hot summer days.

The Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Repair Program provides air conditioning repair assistance to income-eligible households with an elderly (over 65), child (under 5) or disabled resident.

The city’s Utility Service Assistance Program can also help pay Tarrant County residents’ electric bills, based on eligibility and funding availability.

View eligibility requirements and apply for these programs on the Community Action Partners webpage or schedule an appointment by calling 817-392-5790. Depending on the number of requests, funding for some programs may be limited or unavailable.

Learn more about the city’s Community Action Partners at 817-392-5720.
