HASP Feature BW

Qalipu First Nation (QFN) Housing Division is pleased to launch the Home Accessibility Support Program Monday, April 4, 2022. The Home Accessibility Support Program (HASP) serves to provide financial support opportunities for QFN band members who reside in Newfoundland and Labrador and living with disabilities. While funding for HASP is limited at this time, the collection of data and need for similar programs will be thoroughly assessed during this first launch.

HASP is intended to provide such financial supports toward housing retrofits and modifications to increase accessibility, functionality, sustainability, and longevity, that will ensure a safe and sound standard of living specific to the members needs. Applicants must submit all required documentation by May 31, 2022, and successful applicants that may be eligible to receive up to a maximum of $2,500.00 in assistance will be notified before June 30, 2022.

It is strongly encouraged that applicants and/or co-applicants review the application in its entirety to ensure all required documentation is included before mailing it back to QFN Housing Division.

Applicants and/or co-applicants with questions surrounding the application process can reach out to 709-634-3176 or 709-634-0411. Please ensure you provide your name and phone number if you are directed to voicemail.

Program Eligibility:

  • Applicant and/or Co-Applicant must be a registered member of Qalipu First Nation*
  • Applicant and/or Co-Applicant are required to be a resident of Newfoundland and Labrador
  • Applicant is required to provide proof of combined annual income
  • Applicant is required to provide proof of home ownership or lease/rental agreement**

*A co-applicant can be the homeowner who is a not a member of the band, and is applying for their live-in dependent, who is a registered band member. Additionally, a co-applicant can be a member of the band applying for a dependent, who is not a registered member of the band. 

Please note: If housing ownership or leasing/rental agreement is in the name of a non-member spouse or partner (co-applicant),  it will be necessary to provide further documentation to support that you are a resident of the same household.

** Registered Band Members that are not homeowners but who are leasing/renting a living space may have limitations within their landlord lease/rental agreements. Due to this factor, the applicant may only be eligible for retrofits and modifications that would be permitted by the landlord and a letter of consent may be required.
