Heating Assistance Rebate Program

The Heating Assistance Rebate Program (HARP) provides help to low and modest income Nova Scotians to heat their homes in the winter.

What help will I receive from HARP?

If you are single and earn $27,000 or less (after tax), or if your family has a combined income of $42,000 or less (after tax) and you pay to heat your home, you can apply to receive up to a $200 rebate, per heating season.

How can I get a HARP application?

If you received the rebate last year, you will automatically receive an application by mail. You may only apply once in a heating season. If you did not apply last year, you can:

  • Apply Online at
