HOPE Program

A senior who received HOPE program funding. 

Gerry Kemp recently received funding through the HOPE program. Read his story here. 

What HOPE is for

Through the HOPE program, the City aims to:

  • improve housing conditions for qualifying-income households;
  • help meet Cornerstones II objectives to improve access to affordable housing; and
  • address the ongoing demand for home repair funding like the former Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program (RRAP).

HOPE will help qualifying homeowners bring their homes to a minimum standard of health and safety relating to plumbing, heating, electrical, structural, fire safety, disability modifications and energy efficiency. The program will offer conditional grant funding up to a maximum of $20,000.

Applicants will be considered for up to $2,000 in additional funding for energy efficient upgrades as part of The Way We Green, Edmonton's environmental strategic plan. Applicants may also receive up to $1,000 under Curb Appeal for exterior home improvements within the designated priority neighbourhoods only (priority neighbourhoods are Alberta Avenue, Boyle Street, Central McDougall, Eastwood, McCauley, and Queen Mary Park).

Who can apply

HOPE began as a pilot program in priority neighbourhoods to help communities achieve neighbourhood sustainability and support ongoing community revitalization initiatives. Due the success of the pilot version of the program, as of January 02, 2014, the program has expanded to include all neighbourhoods within Edmonton.

If you are a homeowner and your income is less than the Maximum Income Threshold by Household Size guidelines (see chart below), and you would like to make improvements or disability modifications to your home, consult the information guide for further details.
