The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has approved a $10 million increase to the HVAC repair and replacement fund that helps homeowners in the county with the cost of energy efficiency home improvement projects.

“Air conditioning isn’t a ‘nice to have’ in the Sonoran Desert. During the summer months, it is a necessity,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Clint Hickman, District 4. “We have been able to help hundreds of families keep their homes cool during the summer heat.  And through this program, we often learn families have other needs and we connect them to additional services.”

To date, the County’s Home Improvement Program has completed 299 projects to help eligible households. With the additional funding, the County estimates that up to 600 households will be supported with HVAC repairs and/or full system replacements.

The $10 million boost in funding comes from the County's allocation of federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds, which are being used to address issues facing families and households as the community recovers from the effects of the pandemic and navigates budget-busting inflation.

 In addition to the $10 million increase in the HVAC repair and replacement fund, the Board of Supervisors had previously allocated $8.65 million, bringing the total funding to $18.65 million. This funding will be used to help income-qualified households with repairs and replacements to their air conditioning and other energy-related needs to ensure the health and safety of everyone in the home.
