In December the Province announced a one time expansion to the Home Heating Program to support vulnerable Nova Scotians. The one-time rebate change starts on 30 January 2023 and you can receive up to $1,000 if you qualify for the Heating Assistance Rebate Program.
To qualify for the expanded rebate, you need to pay for your own home (residential) heat and have a household income of $85,000 or less. Applications to the expanded program open on 30 January to 31 March 2023. You don’t need to apply for the rebate again if you already applied to the regular heating rebate program.
