Cooling Portland

The Heat Response Program is now Cooling Portland:

 A PCEF-Funded Climate Resilience Program


Thank you for visiting AAAH’s Cooling Portland application page. Due to high demand, it is necessary for us to temporarily close the application at this time. We anticipate reopening our application on Monday June 12th.  We will not be taking calls or emails related to AC Units during the closure. Thank you for your understanding.


- Recipient must live in the City of Portland

- Must have income that is 60% or less of the Area Median Income, adjusted for household size

  A chart of income and household size thresholds is available here

Distribution of AC units is being prioritized to assist our most at-risk neighbors. Vulnerable populations are defined by the program as people with low incomes and who also have two or more of the following risk factors:

  • Are over 60 years of age.

  • Have medical conditions that increase risk of heat-related illness.

  • Are living alone.

Housing Providers 


If you live in a housing unit managed by one of the following housing providers in the Cooling Portland Program, contact your property manager directly to determine if you are eligible to receive a cooling unit. Housing providers are currently only serving people who live in the housing that they manage.
