Low-income families and individuals are getting a break from the heat in Boone County.
The Voluntary Action Center started this yearâ??s window air conditioner exchange program.
Some customers of Columbia Water and Light and Boone Electric can trade their older, less efficient units for a brand new one.
Individuals must have a gross monthly income of less than $1,900 to qualify for the exchange.
The Voluntary Action Center is also collecting and giving away fans for the 26th Annual Summer Fan Program.
Two years ago, the organization gave out a record 445 fans.
Exchange days are Tuesdays and Thursdays between now and September 11, or when they run out of units.
