Sussex and Kent County residents may qualify to receive an energy-efficient window air conditioner through the 2015 Summer Cooling Assistance Program (SCAP). The program helps cool homes with a room-sized window unit and ensures the health and safety of low-income residents, particularly households with small children, elderly individuals, and those with chronic health conditions which aggravated by extreme heat conditions.
