DHHS Helps Nebraskans Cool Down with Fans, Bill Payment Assistance

DHHS Helps Nebraskans Cool Down with Fans, Bill Payment Assistance
Courtney Phillips, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services

Lincoln – The Department of Health and Human Services has partnered with 59 organizations in 20 Nebraska counties to distribute fans to citizens to better cope with summer’s higher temperatures.

The recipients of the fans are determined by the organizations that distribute them.  Persons seeking a fan should call the telephone number of the organization nearest them for more information. (A list follows of organizations distributing fans.)
The fans were purchased with funds from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families, and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services administers the funds.

Funds also are available through the DHHS cooling program to assist low-income individuals and families with bill payments.

Applications can be requested online at:, or by calling 1-800-383-4278, or any local DHHS office.

To be eligible for the cooling program, a person 70 years of age or older, or receiving ADC and have a child six years of age or younger,  or a person who is more susceptible to heat because of their medical condition, must live in the household. The annual income limits are:

SIZE OF                                             ANNUAL
HOUSEHOLD                                     INCOME
1                                                         $13,537
2                                                         $18,247
3                                                         $22,956
4                                                         $27,666
5                                                         $32,376
6                                                         $37,085
7                                                         $41,795
8                                                         $46,504

For each additional household member, add $4,710. Additional information can be found at:
