*Madison County Residents
Madison County Community Development will provide one window air conditioning unit for low-income households for the elderly, disabled and with children 5 years old or younger.   If your household has received an AC unit from them within the last 3 years, you're not eligible.  You must be at or below 125% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.  You will need income documentation, photo ID, be a resident of Madison county, fill out an intake form, provide Social Security cards for everyone in the home and be 60 years old or have proof via a doctor's letter stating a household member is suffering from a condition and needs AC (asthma, COPD, coronary disease & immediate terminal illness), or be under 5 years old.  A utility bill must be provided to prove you have utilities and it must be current, not a back bill and not in threat of being shut off, and has to be under $500. Staff from the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) will be administering the program.  Each household has to pick up their AC and show an ID - the person who fills out the application is the only one allowed to pick up the unit.  First come, first serve basis. Call for an appointment (618) 296-4388.
