Have you ever done this? Apparently here in Quebec we can get government grants for badly needed house repairs, such as roof, outside doors, windows, and insulation, also for porches and outdoor steps. Has anyone ever used this process? I think we would be eligible. What can you tell me about it?

I actually qualified years ago because my house, although technically on the outskirts of the "downtown" area and far from anything but other houses, was considered part of the "downtown" area locally. The help I got was wonderful!!!!! The contractors are usually very good and know their stuff. We got a free furnace, insulation and winterization based on the fact that our house was in the right area (zip code wise) and our income was low enough. I say go for it unless you hear horrible things about the local program itself!

I don't think for this program the houses have to be that old. The house next door to us used the program last year and I don't think theirs was as old as ours. My mother in laws house was the same age as ours and recently had to be demolished, shortly after she moved to a home. I don't want that to be happening to our home.
