Benefits of the program

Receive an additional amount

This program offers supplementary financial assistance to owners of multi-teant buildings with four or more units, one or more occupied by low-income households. The supplement is determined according to the energy efficiency program in which the owner is participating. The supplementary financial assistance is then shared between the building owner and the low-income households renting a unit in the building where the energy efficiency work is being carried out.

Grant amount

Based on the number of low-income households who live in the building.

The financial assistance takes into account the percentage of low-income households in the building.  For example, if there are 20 low-income households in the building's 30 units, the supplement will be equal to 66% of the basic financial assistance.  The supplement is then shared between the building owner (40% of the supplement) and the low-income households in the building (60% of the supplement).*
