**Starting today, May 27-2021, Canadians will be able to apply online for $5000 federal grand to pay for energy-saving home upgrades**
 
The government of Canada is launching a new program today that offers Canadians grants of up to $5,000 to pay for energy-saving home upgrades.
The Canada Greener Homes Grants program will help homeowners upgrade heaters, install solar panels and replace windows and doors, according to a federal government source with knowledge of the program.
 
Homeowners across the country will be able to apply online starting today. An application starts with an energy evaluation by a certified adviser. That adviser visits an applicant's home and determines which energy-saving measures would qualify for reimbursement.
 
If the homeowner chooses to proceed, a licensed contractor would then be hired to conduct the retrofits. After an inspection of the completed work, the homeowner would be reimbursed.
