Another sign of the times

SCCAP has seen a dramatic increase so far this year in the number of people receiving energy assistance through our Summer Cool Program in our four-county service area.

In the first two weeks of this year’s program, 1,501 households have received $77,790 in benefits.

Let’s compare that to last year. In the first two weeks of last year’s Summer Cool program, 278 households received $14,655 in benefits.

We have done a bit more this year to inform and remind potential participants about the Summer Cool Program, but we think the biggest change, unfortunately, is in the level of need being experienced by our clients.
