Seniors Home Adaptation and Repair Program
Seniors Home Adaptation and Repair Program (SHARP)
Low-interest home equity loans can cover a range of home adaptations and renovations to help Seniors stay in their homes longer.
The Seniors Home Adaptation and Repair Program (SHARP) allows Seniors to use their home equity to remain in their homes and maintain their independence. Eligible Seniors can apply for a low-interest home equity loan with the Government of Alberta to cover repairs, adaptations and renovations to their primary residence.
The intent is to help Seniors:
- remain independent in their homes
- be safe in their homes
- adapt and modify their homes to improve accessibility and mobility
- improve the energy efficiency of their homes
Some project examples are:
- bathroom or walk-in tubs
- furnace and hot water tank upgrades
- stair lifts
- widening of doorways
- roof and window replacement
You must provide a written cost-estimate or receipts for all project funds being applied for.
Seniors may apply for retroactive funding. Receipts must be provided for home repairs, adaptations or renovations completed and paid for within 12 months before the date that SHARP staff receives your application package.
