GLENDALE REMINDS RESIDENTS ABOUT EMERGENCY HOME REPAIR PROGRAM AS SUMMER TEMPS RISE

City of Glendale ArizonaGlendale, Ariz. –Climbing desert temperatures mean increased usage of evaporative coolers and

home air conditioning units. During our summer months, it is vital that these units are operating properly,

especially for high-risk groups like the elderly and small children who are most vulnerable to heat-related

health concerns.

To help out, Glendale’s Emergency Home Repair Program offers emergency repair assistance to

qualifying low-income family or elderly city residents through federally funded Community Development

Block Grant (CDBG) programs.

To qualify for Emergency Home Repair Program assistance, applicants must own and occupy their

residence and meet income requirements based on family size and program criteria. Funding is limited and

repairs are approved on a case-by-case basis depending on the urgency and type of emergency repair

needed.

“Last year, this critical service provided 144 repair visits to Glendale homeowners, many of which

were A/C and cooler-related,” said Glendale Community Revitalization Administrator Charyn Eirich-
Palmisano.

“Most calls for help with service repairs during the warm weather months include repairs to

residential air conditioning or evaporative coolers, but other examples of the types of eligible repairs could

be electrical, mechanical or plumbing,” said spokesperson Angie Soto, Habitat for Humanity Central

Arizona.

Glendale’s Emergency Home Repair Program is implemented through its non-profit partner, Habitat

for Humanity Central Arizona. For more information, or to apply for assistance, please call Habitat for

Humanity Central Arizona at 623-583-2417.
