BC Rebate for Accessible Home Adaptations


BC RAHA Assessment

The BC RAHA program (Rebate for Accessible Home Adaptations) is a helping hand for seniors and individuals with permanent health conditions. It offers rebates of up to $20,000 to eligible low- and moderate- income households for home adaptations. If you’re a resident of BC with limited income and assets, and either you or someone in your household has a permanent disability or loss of ability, you may qualify. The program focuses on making your home more accessible and promoting continued safe and independent living.
