Senior Cool Care Program

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

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 800-552-3402.

Most of Dominion Energy's donations to the Fan Care program go toward the purchase of fans. Funds also are available to agencies to purchase air-conditioners for clients with more serious health problems.


To be eligible for Senior Cool Care, an individual must:
  • Live in Virginia.
  • Be age 60 or older.
  • Have a need for additional cooling assistance in the home.
  • Meet income guidelines defined by the Area Agencies on Aging.

Tax-deductible contributions can be made in any amount to your local Area Agency on Aging.
