Home heating costs can be difficult for low-income Nova Scotians to afford, which is why the Heating Assistance Rebate Program (HARP) is once again available.
Applications are now open for the 2020-21 heating season. The program provides a rebate of up to $200 to low-income Nova Scotians who pay for their own heat.
To qualify for the program, the income threshold is $29,000 for one-person households and $44,000 for households with more than one person.
— applications are also available through Access Nova Scotia, Community Services offices and MLA offices
— more than 45,000 Nova Scotians received the heating rebate in 2019-20
— applicants who have direct deposit arrangements with Canada Revenue Agency will receive their rebate through direct deposit
— the program closes March 31, 2021
