Clarification, Residential Home Heat & Energy Program

Update web header

*No new application process, disbursement of available funds to existing applicants*

In the fall of 2021 and again in June 2022, Qalipu First Nation announced funding under the Covid-19 Residential Home Heat & Energy Rebate Program.   Band members were invited to submit an application to be eligible for a one-time payment of up to $350 to help with their home heat and energy costs.   Available funds were allocated by random draw and the application process was closed.

This year, based on existing available funds, Qalipu revisited this original pool of applicants to award payments to those who had not yet been selected (approximately 700 applications).

There is no new application process.  Funds are being awarded to those who previously applied and were unsuccessful.

If you received a phone call or an email from our housing division, it is because you previously applied, and you have now been selected to receive the one-time payment.

Please check your email and voicemail and be sure to respond if your mailing address or direct deposit banking information has changed.

To discuss this, please reach out to the Housing Division.
