Fan Care Program

The Fan Care Program - June 1 - Sept. 30 

The Fan Care program begins on June 1 and runs through the end of September. The Fan Care program is another way to help older Fairfax area residents stay safe in the summer heat. This electric fan distribution program, sponsored by Dominion Virginia Power in partnership with the Virginia Department for the Aging, annually provides a limited number of free fans or window air conditioners to eligible senior adults in the Fairfax area.

To qualify for Fan Care, a person must be at least 60 years old, need a fan to prevent heat-related health problems and meet income eligibility requirements. Not everyone in the home needs to be an older adult to qualify for a fan, but all incomes must be counted. There is a limit of one fan per household.

To request an application, call the Fairfax County’s Department of Family Services – Fairfax Area Agency on Aging at 703-324-7694,, TTY 703-449-1186..
