It's hard to believe that we're already into July! As the summer months continue, the chapter is here for you with financial assistance for summer energy (see our program highlight for more information) as well as other exciting programs, teleconferences and events.
Summer Energy Assistance: Support Available to Beat the Heat This Summer
Heat management is an important part of managing MS, especially during the hot summer months. Our Summer Energy Assistance Program is designed to provide individuals with MS who meet the eligibility criteria with support by means of a one-time financial assistance grant that can be used for items such as an energy bill, portable air conditioner, fan, cooling vest, or other cooling garments. Eligibility and the amount of grants available are based on annual household income guidelines.
