Municipal Top-Ups

A growing number of local governments in BC are offering top-up rebates (municipal top-ups) to the CleanBC Better Homes and Home Renovation Rebate Program.

Important: Municipal top-up rebates are limited, subject to funding availability, and approved on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to program volumes, we cannot guarantee municipal top-ups will be available to homeowners.

How to apply

There is no additional application required for the municipal top-up offers. Your eligibility is automatically assessed when you submit a CleanBC Better Homes and Home Renovation Rebate application for the applicable rebates. To find full rebate program requirements, deadlines, and application steps, check out the rebate search tool.
