Home Equity Assistance

100% Home Equity Assistance in CFIRP

TBS used wrong assessment criteria for HEA well into 2012 (after turning down hundreds)

TBS access to information requests reveal new HEA numbers.  Page 143 of the report above indicate that there were 458 applications for Home Equity Assistance in 3 years. Of those, 191 personnel exhausted their envelopes and could have used the HEA entitlement if they met the criteria.

In the period 2007-2015, only 2 applications have been approved. Neither of these HEA approvals met the 20% criteria (which was not even assessed), and yet ALL the other applications were denied (as was mine) for not meeting the 20%.

An interesting point, in 2012 the TBS was still (wrongly) using the 20% value as determined by the house in question’s difference having to drop by 20%, instead of what is clearly stated in the policy (community dropping by 20%).  DND let them know in 2012, yet members still were denied on this maladministration. See pages 224 and 233 of the attached.


Hey, wait a minute…TBS was using the wrong criteria in 2012? Thats a full 3 years after the issue was brought to their attention and after hundreds of troops were denied their entitlements!
