Home Energy Loan Program Pilot Expands City-Wide

The City of Toronto’s Home Energy Loan Program (HELP) is now available to homeowners in all areas of the city. Since its official launch in January 2014, the program had been offered previously in select, pilot neighbourhoods.

Through the program, qualifying homeowners can apply for a low-interest loan from the City for energy-efficient improvements to their home. The loan is then repaid via monthly instalments on the homeowner’s property tax bill. Eligible properties include detached, semi-detached and row houses.
