In 2016 the home owner grant threshold of assessed or partitioned value was $1.2 million. The grant is reduced by $5.00 for each $1,000.00 above the threshold.
If you qualify for the seniors or other additional grant, but the grant amount has been reduced or eliminated due to the $1.2 million threshold, you may still be eligible for the low income grant supplement .
If you have concerns about the threshold change, please contact the Province of BC's Home Owner Grant Administration Branch:
