The Home Ownership Affordability Partnership (HOAP) is a unique solution to affordable housing in our community.  It is a partnership between the REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB), Scotiabank and the City of Hamilton. The program is designed to increase the opportunities for affordable homeownership within our community.

The idea is a simple one, a qualified interested family, currently living in subsidized housing, works with a REALTOR® to purchase a home that is in need of repair.  The home is purchased at the current market value.  Renovations are determined and carried out by qualified general contractors, plumbers and electricians.  The renovation focus is on safety, cleanliness and building code.

The purpose of the partnership is to assist families achieve their dream of home ownership, revitalize existing housing stock, promote building and renovation skills for students and open social housing units for other families in need.
