Renovations and Mold Renovations Renovation Subsidy The maximum allowable renovation subsidy is fifty per cent (50%) of a new home subsidy: where renovation costs exceed the renovation subsidy amount, TFN INAC arrange for other financing to cover the balance. INAC BC Region provides a mold renovation subsidy to assist First Nations with mold remediation. Mold renovations are more complicated, and can be more costly than regular renovations, therefore INAC BC Region may approve up to twice the renovation subsidy amount for eligible mold remediation project costs.
