General Criteria to Apply

To be eligible, you must be a resident of BC with limited income and assets. You or someone in your household must have a permanent disability or loss of ability. The adaptations requested must support accessibility and promote continued safe and independent living in your home.

Eligible households include homeowners and joint applications from tenants and landlords.

Program Overview

If you’re eligible, you could receive rebates for up to $17,500 for eligible adaptations. Rebates are based on the adaptation(s) requested. See BC-RAHA Maximum Rebate Schedule for more information.

The maximum total lifetime rebate is $17,500 per household or unit, including funding provided under the Home Adaptations for Independence program (after April 2019). Other restrictions apply to tenant and landlord applications.

Applications are reviewed on a first-come-first served basis. As funding is limited, only completed applications with all supporting documents will be approved. The BC RAHA program has a lifetime funding maximum. Please take this into consideration when selecting adaptations.
