Home Repair Program

Complex application

Tax filing required

The Home Repair Program provides funding for Yukon homeowners to repair or upgrade their principal residence.

The Home Repair Program has three streams of funding:

  • A grant for emergency repairs for your home.
    • This stream funds homeowners to fix serious, unexpected, and dangerous situations requiring immediate repairs. The emergency repair grant provides up to $10,000.
  • A grant to improve accessibility of your home.
    • This stream funds homeowners to retrofit their homes if they have mobility challenges. The accessibility grant provides up to $30,000.
  • A loan to repair your home.
    • This stream provides a loan to homeowners who need to upgrade or repair their home. The home repair loan provides up to $70,000 which can be repaid over a period of 15 years in five-year terms.

You are eligible for the Home Repair Program if:

  • You are a Yukon resident.
  • Your home needs repairs or upgrades to improve energy efficiency, overcrowding, accessibility or health and safety.
  • Your household income is less than $103,070 per year.
  • You own your own home.

It is important to note that if your repair project is completed before receiving written approval from Yukon Housing Corporation you will not qualify for the program. You can only receive 1 grant per household a year.
