First Time Home Buyers Grant
Renfrew County will open a grant application process for two housing affordability programs beginning June 6 2022.
The programs are Ontario Renovates and Affordable Homeownership.
Ontario Renovates is a program that provides financial assistance to homeowners by way of a forgivable loan to repair their home to acceptable standards while improving the energy efficiency and/or increasing accessibility of their unit. Loans of up to $10,000 (additional funding of up to $3,500 for accessibility) are available. This program is funded by the Investment in Affordable Housing for Ontario Revolving Loan Fund and can help homeowners with eligible repairs, including heating systems, windows, roofs, plumbing and accessibility modifications.
The Affordable Homeownership Program aims to assist low-to-moderate-income renter households to purchase affordable homes by providing down payment assistance in the form of a forgivable loan. This program is funded by the Investment in Affordable Housing for Ontario Revolving Loan Fund. Loans of up to $25,000 toward the purchase of a home are available.
