Making a home safe for independent living.
Earlier in 2012, BC Housing announced a financial program aimed at providing financial assistance to low income seniors and people with disabilities for modifications to their homes for accessible, safe and independent living. The program is funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia.
Up to $20,000 per home may be available to eligible homeowners, renters and landlords in the form of a forgivable loan. The financial assistance is also available for strata lot owners living in multi-unit buildings who may benefit from adaptations for their individual unit as well as common areas.
To find out if you are eligible for assistance under the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program, contact BC Housing:
