Senior Cool Care Program

Who We Are

Senior Cool Care is a public-private partnership administered by The Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) that helps low-income older citizens in Virginia keep cool during summer months. Dominion Energy sponsors the program.

The program provides one free single-room air conditioner to elderly Virginians who live within Dominion Energy’s service area and who meet eligibility requirements. Local Area Agencies on Aging administer Senior Cool Care by screening applicants and distributing air conditioners. A list of participating agencies is available by contacting the Virginia Department for the Aging at 1-800-552-3402.
