Heating Oil Tank Replacement Program


The Heating Oil Tank Replacement Program (HOTRP) provides assistance to homeowners to replace their heating oil tank or associated components, as well as installation, in the form of a grant of up to $7,500 per unit. Where it can be demonstrated that a client does not have access to local skilled labour in their community, and where no other options exist for the delivery of the program, the NHC may cover the travel costs to bring in a contractor to complete the job.

A formal deadline of April 30 of each year has been established for applications. A submission of application before deadline does not guarantee funding. All applications post marked on or before April 30 will be considered at the same time.

Eligible Clients

  • The applicant(s) must be at least 19 years of age.
  • This program follows income eligibility limits as set by the Homeownership Program Income Eligibility (HPIE) numbers
  • The applicant(s) must possess title (or leasehold title) to the property. Note: Existing NHC homeowner clients who do not possess leasehold title to the property, but occupy the unit under an Occupancy Agreement are eligible for HOTRP provided that all other eligibility requirements are met.
  • Because of the risk of environmental contamination, all client(s) are encouraged to apply for fuel spill supplementary coverage as part of their homeowner insurance.
