Rebate for Accessible Home Adaptations (BC RAHA) - Program Overview

The BC Rebate for Accessible Home Adaptations (BC RAHA) provides financial assistance in the form of a rebate to eligible low- and moderate-income households to complete home adaptations for continued independent living in their home.

The BC RAHA program is anticipated to close at the end of January and new applications will no longer be accepted after January 31, 2022 for this funding year. BC RAHA is allocated on a first come first served basis with priority given to complete applications, and receipt of your application by BC RAHA does not guarantee funding. Program details and application information for the new funding year will be available on the BC Housing website in April 2022.
