Residential Energy Efficiency Program (REEP)

Program Description

REEP is a provincial initiative designed to assist households with low income in making energy efficient retrofits to their homes. The program assists clients with retrofits that will make their homes more affordable and reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

What assistance is available under REEP?

Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation (NLHC) will provide a pre and post-energy inspection.

For owners of single, row and semi-detached housing, assistance is available in the form of a grant up to $3,000 per unit on the island and up to $4,000 per unit in Labrador.

Condo owners are not eligible for REEP assistance.

What repairs or renovations qualify under this program?

All repairs will be identified through an energy evaluation, which will determine the best possible solutions for energy efficiency. A post-energy evaluation will also be required to confirm that identified work was completed. Examples of some repairs that will create energy efficiency are: basement and attic insulation, and draft-proofing.

Who is eligible?

Homeowners with incomes of $32,500 or less per year are eligible. Proof of homeownership must be provided with the application and previous year's certified income for applicant and co-applicant must be enclosed. Previous year's income information must be obtained by contacting Canada Revenue Agency at 1-800-959-8281 and requesting your Option "C" Printout. Incomplete applications will be returned.

NOTE: If you have already received REEP assistance, you are not eligible to reapply.

How are eligible homeowners selected for the program?

Applicants will be served on a “first-come, first-served” basis. Applications can be dropped off at any NLHC office and will be date stamped when received, or if mailed, the post-mark date will be used.
