Énergir offers supplementary financial assistance to low-income households of up to double the amount of the usual energy efficiency program grant.
This program offers supplementary financial assistance to owners of multi-teant buildings with four or more units, one or more occupied by low-income households. The supplement is determined according to the energy efficiency program in which the owner is participating. The supplementary financial assistance is then shared between the building owner and the low-income households renting a unit in the building where the energy efficiency work is being carried out.
The supplementary financial assistance is determined according to the energy efficiency program in which you are participating, and also takes into account the percentage of low-income households in the building. For example, if there are two low-income households in a building with 10 units, the basic financial assistance would be increased by 20 %. The supplementary assistance is then shared between the building owner (40 % of the supplement) and the low-income households in the building (60 % of the supplement).
