RRAP Grants

What is the Rental Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program (Rental RRAP) On-Reserve?

Rental RRAP On-Reserve offers financial assistance to landlords of affordable housing not owned by the First Nation to pay for mandatory repairs to self-contained units occupied by lowincome tenants. Mandatory repairs are those required to bring properties up to minimum levels of health and safety.

Who is eligible?

Owners (landlords) of affordable self-contained housing units located on-reserve may apply if: ■ the household incomes of their tenants are at or below the established thresholds (these vary based on household size and geographic location)

  • The projects have pre- and post-RRAP rents at or below limits established by CMHC
  • Tenants are not family relatives of the owner
  • The property is not owned by the First Nation. Landlords must also:
    • Agree to place a ceiling on the rents that may be charged after the repairs are completed
    • Limit rent increases during the term of the agreement
    • Agree to limit new occupancy to tenants with incomes at or below the income threshold
    • Cover cost of mandatory repairs above the maximum forgivable loan available.
