Financial Assistance Programs

The East York Housing Help Centre can help you apply for different financial assistance programs to help you cover some costs associated with monthly housing expenses.  This includes the Toronto Rent Bank which helps with arrears or first and last month’s rent, the  Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) which helps you with your hydro and gas bills if you are in arrears, and the Ontario Energy Support Program (OESP) which offers rebates to help lower your monthly hydro bills.

You can call our office at 416-698-9306 or email for more information.

If you are seeking assistance for the Toronto Rent Bank Program, please call 416-397-7368 (RENT).  Please do not contact the Housing Help Centre. Thanks!
