The Centre is excited to partner with the City of St. John’s to increase the availability of community housing in the city through the Housing Catalyst Fund.
This year $110,000 was awarded in grants to five transformative projects.
“The Centre is proud to contribute to these transformative projects in St. John’s. By working together, we collectively increase the impact of our efforts and the resources available to housing providers,”
“While the projects themselves are diverse, they share a common thread: increasing the supply of affordable housing in St. John’s. This is consistent with the Centre’s mission of supporting a vibrant and growing community housing sector and we are dedicated to growing partnerships like the Catalyst Fund to help the sector meet the growing needs of our community.”
