Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program - RRAP for Homeowners

The Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program – RRAP for Homeowners offers financial assistance to low-income homeowners for mandatory home repairs that will preserve the quality of affordable housing. The program helps people who live in substandard dwellings and cannot afford to pay for necessary repairs to their home.

Delivered by: Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) in Yukon Territory.

Yukon Territory has chosen to maintain existing delivery arrangements for the Affordable Housing Initiative and renovation programs off-reserve for the 2011-2014 period. As a result, CMHC is delivering the renovation programs off-reserve including RRAP for Homeowners in this jurisdiction.

In all other jurisdictions, federal investments in affordable housing are being cost matched and delivered by provinces and territories under the Investment in Affordable Housing (IAH) 2011-14 agreement. Under the agreement, provinces and territories match the federal funding that was previously allocated for the Affordable Housing Initiative and Renovation Programs Off-Reserve and deliver a range of provincially/territorially-designed affordable housing programs, which may include financial assistance for renovation programs.
