Aging housing stock, rising energy costs and increasing demand for affordable housing have created a unique challenge for affordable housing providers. Through the Sustainable Affordable Housing Initiative, funding is available to municipal and non-profit organizations, as well as housing co-ops. This stream supports energy efficient building’s construction, equipped with lower GHG emissions. It is also possible to upgrade existing affordable housing units in order to increase energy efficiency.
“This funding stream will help affordable housing providers to realize new and exciting energy efficiency opportunities,” says Stéphan Corriveau, Executive Director at the Centre. “With the available funding, many new projects can take shape and make tenants’ lives more comfortable while meeting environmental standards. “
Specific information on eligibility requirements for housing providers can be found in this guide. Local non-profit housing initiatives are strongly encouraged to apply for Sustainable Affordable Housing grant!
