Three amazing programs the city of Kingston offers
(Dec 27, 2017 - Kingston, ON) One of the reasons I love this city is the way it helps its citizens in innovative ways. I’d like to highlight 3 such programs today:
1) Preventative Plumbing Program -http://www.utilitieskingston.com/wastewater/basementflooding/preventative.aspx
Provides financial assistance to homeowners doing work to their own home to reduce the risk of future sewage backup.
2) Rent/Utility Arrears Bank – http://www.cityofkingston.ca/residents/community-services/housing/programs/low-income-assistance
To assist individuals in maintaining their housing when facing eviction due to rent arrears or in maintaining their energy source(s).
3) Home Ownership Program – http://www.cityofkingston.ca/residents/community-services/housing/programs/home-ownership
Provides up to $14,529 towards the downpayment on a home purchase for residents presently renting. The city hosts regular information sessions on this program and I normally try to attend. If you'd like to be put on my list to be sent a reminder of the next time an info session takes place, feel free to email me.
