Not at this time. We recognize that many Nova Scotians living on a lower income are renters. However, rental situations are complex. For example, we want to make sure that savings are passed on to renters. We are exploring rental options and will update the program if possible.
In the meantime, you can refer your landlord to the Affordable Multifamily Housing Program. If eligible, as a tenant, you will enjoy the benefits that come with living in a more energy efficient building.
You can also visit another website, www.EnergyAssist.ca, for information on various free energy assistance programs that could be right for you. Just answer a few simple questions and it will tell you about the programs (for both homeowners and renters) that you may be eligible for. It’s easy and confidential.
