Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program - RRAP for Persons with Disabilities
The Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program - RRAP for Persons with Disabilities offers financial assistance to allow homeowners and landlords to pay for modifications to make their property more accessible to persons with disabilities. These modifications are intended to eliminate physical barriers, imminent safety risks and improve the ability to meet the demands of daily living within the home.
Delivered by: Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) in Prince Edward Island and Yukon Territory.
Prince Edward Island and Yukon Territory have 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 Persons with Disabilities in these two jurisdictions.
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.
Homeowners and landlords may qualify for assistance if the property is eligible. Your property may be eligible for RRAP-D if the property:
- is occupied, or is intended to be occupied, by a low-income person with a disability;
- is rented and the rents are less than established levels for the area; or
- is owned and the house is valued below a certain amount; and
- does not have major deficiencies to the structure and systems.
Other criteria may apply.
