The Region of Peel is offering up to $15,000 to eligible low-to-moderate income individuals and families, including seniors, who need to renovate their homes to address safety and accessibility concerns.
As well, up to $25,000 is available to eligible homeowners who are renovating an existing second unit to improve health and safety, increase accessibility and register it.
Applications must be made online at peelregion.ca/housing/peelrenovates/ starting April 4. Both programs are first-come, first-served. Home renovation funding is available until April 21 or until funding runs out. Second unit renovation assistance is available until funding runs out.
