NS Affordable housing

Provincial taxpayer’s and the CMHC are providing $7.8 million so more seniors, people with disabilities; and low-income homeowners can stay in their homes longer.

The money will go to bolstering existing home repair and adaptation programs with the Homeowner Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program getting the most at $6.9 million.  Eligible repairs may include structural, electrical; plumbing, heating and fire safety.  Homeowners’ eligibility will be assessed on their income and in some case the value of their home.
