Popularity of the Ontario Renovates Program for County of Renfrew Residents to Access Funding For Home Repairs, Results in Large Number of Applications
Renfrew, ON: During the month of April, The County of Renfrew, in partnership with the Province of Ontario, once again offered a program to assist seniors and disabled individuals to access funding for upgrades to their homes to enhance their quality of life. 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. Due to the overwhelming number of applications received, the Renfrew County Housing Corporation is no longer accepting applications to the program.
Chair of the County of Renfrew Social Service Committee, Councillor Debbie Robinson shared this, “We are very pleased with the impact that the Ontario Renovates Program makes in the prevention of homelessness in our communities. Our hope is for continued support from the Province of Ontario with increased funding for this program to assist us in helping even more residents in the future.”
Carol Neill, General Manager of The Renfrew County Housing Corporation, thanked the residents of the County of Renfrew for their support for this program. “We are pleased to be able to help service a great need in our community with the Ontario Renovates Program. It is encouraging to know that some of our most vulnerable residents were able to access this program in order to improve their home and improve their quality of life.”
