Municipalities or regional partnerships must:
- have populations over 2,500;
- have an Official Community Plan or be in the process of developing one. (In the case of a regional partnership, the lead municipality must take on this responsibility.)
- prove that implementing the strategy will address a housing need identified in a housing plan or another type of assessment; and
- contribute an amount at least equal to the funding request.
This program only applies to off-reserve housing.
Funding is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
Funds must be used within six months of signing the agreement.
