The City of Kawartha Lakes is participating in the Ontario Renovates Component of the Investment in Affordable Housing for Ontario – 2014 Extension which was developed to help homeowners improve their living conditions by providing financial assistance to repair deficiencies or make accessibility modifications.

Kawartha-Haliburton Renovates provides a forgivable loan to a maximum of $10,000 for repairs such as roofs, plumbing, heating, foundations, wells, septic systems, etc. A grant to a maximum of $5,000 is also available for modifications to reduce physical barriers such as ramps, handrails, chair and bath lifts, countertop height adjustments, etc.

Each eligible application received will be considered for funding on a first come first serve basis. Application forms for the 2015 funding year will be available on April 1st, 2015 and will be available until such time as all funding is allocated.
