Claiming your home owner grant

Home owner grant applications must be submitted directly to the Province. Learn more and submit your grant application

The home owner grant is a provincial program that helps reduce the amount of residential property tax you pay.

Tips for claiming your grant

  • You must apply for your home owner grant each year
  • Check if you're eligible and for which grant amount
  • If you pay your taxes at your financial institution, claim your home owner grant online separately

When your grant will appear on your tax account

After the Province receives your grant submission, it may take 3-4 business days for your City of Vancouver tax account balance to update. 

To avoid a 5% penalty, make sure before the property tax due date: 

  • The Province receives your valid grant application
  • You have arranged payment for the balance (reduced by your eligible grant amount)
