Financial Assistance Program

The East York Housing Help Centre can also assist you in applying for available financial assistance programs, such as:

  • Rent Bank – interest-free loans available to residents of the City of Toronto for first and last month’s rent and for tenants who have fallen into arrears with their landlords.
  • Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) – assistance for arrears with your Hydro or Enbridge account.
  • Ontario Electricity Support Program (OESP) – a monthly credit to be applied to your Electricity Bill.

Call the East York Housing Help Centre to start your financial assistance application today. If you are an Enbridge (Gas) customer, you must call the United Way Simcoe at 1-855-487-LEAP (5327) to start the process.
