Nova Scotians who need help with home heating costs will continue to benefit from the province’s heating rebate program. Last winter, more than 51,000 Nova Scotians received the rebate. They will receive a filled-in application form to encourage them to re-apply, but must continue to meet program requirements to receive the rebate. Applications for the Heating Assistance Rebate Program (HARP), which offers eligible applicants a rebate of up to $200, are now available for the 2012-13 winter season. In addition to HARP, the province removes the provincial portion of the HST from home heating bills.
