Nova Scotia Home Adaptations for Seniors' Independence

This program helps homeowners pay for home adaptations so seniors with low incomes can stay in their homes independently for longer periods of time. A one-time forgivable grant of up to $3,500 is available.
What financial assistance is available?

A forgivable loan of up to $3,500 is available, and does not need to be repaid as long as the homeowner agrees to live in their home for a minimum of six months after the adaptations are made.

The home repairs covered by this grant include minor items to help with age-related challenges. Some examples include:

Handrails in hallways and stairways
Easy-to-reach work and storage areas in the kitchen
Lever handles on doors
Walk-in showers and grab bars
Bathtub grab bars and seats

Any adaptions that are made should be permanent. Exceptions can be made for equipment like bath lifts that help to make accessing basic facilities easier. Other aids like walkers and household appliances are not covered by this funding.
Am I Eligible?
