(Portland, OR) -- The Oregon Health Authority is increasing distributing of air conditioning units as the heat wave gets underway. The Oregon Legislature approved a program to allocate five-million dollars to buy air conditioners for high-risk Oregonians who are eligible to receive medical assistance from the state or federal government. Over the weekend, organizations working with the OHA distributed 500 air conditioners. Another two-thousand units are on order. OHA is partnering with more community organizations to increase distribution of the units.
