Housing Programs for Seniors

Housing Nova Scotia offers several programs to help seniors with lower incomes maintain and modify their homes to ensure they are safe and affordable.

Home Adaptations for Seniors' Independence

This program helps homeowners pay for home adaptations so seniors with low incomes can stay in their homes independently for longer periods of time.

The Senior Citizens Assistance Program

This program provides assistance to senior homeowners (age 65+) who would like to remain in their own homes, but cannot afford necessary repairs.

Public Housing for Seniors

This program provides affordable rental housing to seniors (age 58 and older) with low incomes. Rent is determined by your annual income.
