Home construction re­bate pro­gram reaches limit

Cape Breton Post - - FRONT PAGE -

HAL­I­FAX (CP) — A Nova Sco­tia gov­ern­ment re­bate pro­gram of­fer­ing up to $7,000 on the pur­chase of a newly built home has reached its limit.

The pro­gram, which has ap­proved 1,500 fam­i­lies for the re­bate, was a key prom­ise by the NDP dur­ing last spring’s elec­tion cam­paign. Ser­vice Nova Sco­tia Min­is­ter Ra­mona Jen­nex says applications will con­tinue to be ac­cepted un­til March 31 and those who qual­ify will be placed on a wait­ing list.

Of­fi­cials say should any­one cur­rently ap­proved with­draw or not meet pro­gram re­quire­ments, then the re­bate will go to the next ap­pli­cant on the wait­ing list.

The re­bate is equiv­a­lent to 50 per cent of the pro­vin­cial por­tion of the HST to a max­i­mum of $7,000.

Ap­pli­cants must have com­pleted construction or closed the sale on a new home by March 31.
