City of Dallas partners with Reliant to help vulnerable residents stay cool in summer heat
Summer in Dallas is known for its sweltering heat, and to help residents stay cool in the city, Dallas is partnering with Reliant to ensure everyone has a safe summer.
Residents who need help keeping cool will be able to receive portable ACs. This is made possible by a program offered by the City of Dallas and Reliant called Beat the Heat, which has been serving the Dallas community for 12 years.
Resources are limited, and registration is required. To register, call the West Dallas Multipurpose Center at (214) 670-6341.
In addition, this program also provides financial assistance to residents who need help paying electrical bills during the summer.
The first distribution will be between 10 a.m. and noon on Thursday, July 22 at the MLK Jr. Community Center, located at 2922 MLK Blvd. Registration is required.
