Residential Energy Efficiency Program (REEP)

Offered through Newfoundland and Labrador Housing, REEP is designed to assist low-income households in making energy efficient retrofits to their homes. Owners of single, row and semi-detached housing may be eligible for a grant up to $3,000 per unit on the island and $4,000 per unit in Labrador. In addition, funding is provided for the completion of a pre and post-energy inspection of the home.
