The Penticton Indian Band offers the Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program (RRAP) to repair eligible substandard homes to a minimum level of health and safety.
AMOUNT OF ASSISTANCE
RRAP repair assistance is provided to the Penticton Indian Band by Canada Mortgage & Housing Corporation. Additional financial assistance for eligible repairs may be provided in the form of grants financed with contributions provided to the Penticton Indian Band by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
RRAP repair assistance is available to eligible band members if the home they occupy lacks basic facilities or is in need of major repair related to the structural, electrical, plumbing, and heating or fire safety components, and to improve accessibility for disabled persons. The home must be a minimum of five years old and any repair work that is completed prior to approval is not eligible. Assistance is available only for the band member’s primary residence located in the Penticton Indian Band. Applicants cannot be in arrears on any payments or user charges to Penticton Indian Band. RRAP repair assistance is provided as a forgivable grant.
BAND MEMBER RESPONSIBILITIES
The Band member will be required to provide verification of income, where required, and must sign a promissory note prior to approval. The Band member must continue to occupy the unit for which the RRAP repair assistance was provided for a period of up to 5 years.
PENTICTON INDIAN BAND RESPONSIBILITIES
Penticton Indian Band, through the housing department, is responsible to manage this program. The housing department will provide counselling and education to assist Band members in understanding and carrying out their responsibilities regarding the application, the promissory note and the RRAP program policies.
