Argenteuil MLA Yves St-Denis has confirmed a financial aid of $135,000 given to the Argenteuil Regional County Municipality by RénoRégion, a programme that provides low-income homeowners with financing to renovate and correct major defects in their homes.
The Argenteuil Regional County Municipality has processed over thirty cases since the programme began in 2015, completing 17 residential projects that totaled nearly $200,000, $169,000 of which came from government grants. “It is a programme that not only accompanies homeowners in renovating their homes, but also encourages the local economy; these projects must be carried out by renowned local businesses,” said the Argenteuil MLA.
To be admissible, the residence must be in need of essential renovations totaling at least $2,000, relating to major defects in structure, plumbing, heating, electricity, exterior walls, roofing or entrances. The maximum government aid is $12,000. Furthermore, the residence must be occupied by the owner who makes the request.
“The renewal of this programme […] is excellent news for our citizens. This money will allow homeowners in need to avoid irreparable deterioration to their homes,” concluded the prefect of Argenteuil Regional County Municipality, Scott Pearce.
