Residential Intervention Program for Dry Rot
The Société d'habitation du Québec (SHQ) has announced that it will be extending its residential intervention program for dry rot until March 31, 2024. This program aims to ease the financial burden on homeowners whose main residence has been contaminated by dry rot by covering part of the costs associated with decontamination and rehabilitation or demolition and reconstruction work.
Financial assistance is available for eligible buildings and covers 75% of the recognized cost of the work, up to $150,000 for demolition-reconstruction and up to $90,000 for decontamination-rehabilitation. To apply for financial assistance or to find out more information, homeowners are encouraged to visit the SHQ website.
The SHQ is Quebec's reference in housing and is committed to meeting the housing needs of Quebec citizens through its expertise and services. It provides affordable or low-rent housing and offers a range of assistance programs that promote residential construction and renovation, home adaptations, and home ownership.
With the extension of the residential intervention program, homeowners who are facing dry rot contamination in their main residence now have more time and support to undertake the necessary decontamination and rehabilitation or demolition and reconstruction work. By offering financial assistance, the SHQ is helping to ensure that Quebec citizens can continue to live in safe and healthy homes.
