Home Ownership Preservation

This program provides assistance to homeowners to make major repairs or renovations to their homes to meet the minimum level of health and safety standards.

Am I Eligible?

We look at a variety of factors to determine the amount of funding you will receive. These include:

  • Annual household income
  • Household size
  • Household location

Your home must also require repairs to any one of the following major areas:

  • Structural
  • Framework
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical system
  • Heating system
  • Fire safety

Once your application is approved, you must sign an agreement to stay in your home for at least 10 years after the repairs are completed.

For full details on eligibility, contact your local Housing Nova Scotia Office.
