The Province offers a program to help lower-income Nova Scotians with the cost of home heating during the colder months. The program offers a little bit of help to make getting through the winter a little easier.
You may qualify for the Heating Assistance Rebate Program (HARP) if you pay a heating bill at your current address and meet ONE of the following criteria:
- live alone with an income of $27,000 or less
- live with others and have a combined income of $42,000 or less
- receive Income Assistance from the Department of Community Services
- receive the Guaranteed Income Supplement from Service Canada
Applications must be mailed by March 31st. If you require assistance completing your application please do not hesitate to call my office.
Application forms are available at my office on Quinpool Road, online here, as well as:
