HAFI - Home Adaptations For Independence
"Aging in Place" is a term associated with assisting seniors to remain in their current home by installing health and safety renovations.
The British Columbia Gov. is providing seniors with FREE government grants (UP TO $20,000.) which are directed towards renovating an existing 'owner occupied' private residence so that these approved modifications will assist the senior(s) to safely occupy their existing homes for years to come.
To qualify for these FREE grants, seniors must meet certain criterior such as:
1. You are a Canadian Citizen or landed immigrant and permanently reside in
2. Your household income is within the Housing Income Limit for your area
3. Your household assets are less than $100,000.
4. Your BC Assessment value is below the average assessed value of homes
for your assessment area.
