Cooling Portland- Currently Paused

The Heat Response Program is now Cooling Portland:

 A PCEF-Funded Climate Resilience Program


AAAH is partnering with PCEF to provide free, portable air conditioning units to vulnerable populations in Portland who are most at-risk for developing heat-related illnesses during extreme weather.


- 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.
