About this Episode

Samantha McCabe, Wisconsin Watch’s News414 accountability reporting intern, reports that about 36,500 homes in the Milwaukee metro area lacked any air conditioning as of 2019. But Wisconsin’s main program for utility assistance focuses largely on heating aid during cold weather, and typically runs out of resources to offer assistance during heat waves.
