CHPI Minor Home Repair Program

What is Minor Home Repair?                         

The Minor Home Repair program will reduce or prevent homelessness by allowing low income homeowners to remain housed when a relatively small expenditure is required to ensure the home is safe and habitable.

Lanark County will consider requests from homeowners for repairs for any item considered necessary for the health and safety of the household.  Examples of anticipated requests are:

  • Furnace repair/replacement
  • Oil tank repair/replacement
  • Minor roof repair
  • Repairs necessary for accessibility purposes (ramps, lifts etc)
  • Minor plumbing repairs
  • Well water system repairs
  • Home insurance deductibles
