Abstract: We present results of calibration of type Ia supernovae (SNIa) distance scale with distances to host galaxies determined from tip of the red giant branch (TRGB). TRGB is an independent method for determination of distance to galaxies within 10 Mpc. Comparison of distance modules of supernovae and host galaxies revealed a systematically higher values of distance modules determined from SN Ia as compared with those determined from the TRGB method.
