PEI Home Renovation Program

The PEI Home Renovation Program is now accepting applications
NEW 2019: Qualifying criteria expanded and program accepting applications year-round.

The PEI Home Renovation Program provides financial assistance to qualifying Islanders to help cover the cost of major structural renovations to their homes. Eligible applicants may receive up to a maximum $6,000 for eligible renovations to the structure, heating, plumbing, and electrical systems or to improve life safety.  Or in the case of an applicant with a permanent disability, up to a maximum $8,000 may be available if the renovations improve the accessibility of the house. 

Effective 2019, the Prince Edward Island Home Renovation Program is no longer a one-time grant as previous grant recipients will be eligible to reapply in 15 years.
