The Department of Finance and the Canadian Home Builders Association Newfoundland and Labrador (CBHANL) have received a significant response and large volume of applications for the Residential Construction Rebate program and are in the process of approving applications.
Both the department and the CHBANL have been receiving hundreds of calls and emails seeking status updates on applications and advise that this is causing delays in the review and processing of applications.
To speed up this process, resources are being temporarily redirected to aid with processing applications.
Patience is requested from those seeking information on their application status.
To date, the CHBANL has received over 3,500 individual applications.
The CHBANL has focused on the approval of contractors in the first phase, and over 800 contractors have been approved to date.
