On March 22, 2017, Government announced that the Graduate Retention Program -- First Home Plan has been suspended and applications are no longer being accepted.
Although the First Home Plan has been successful and Government will continue to encourage young people to stay in our province, it has made the decision to redirect resources to better help Saskatchewan people in greatest need of housing. This includes people with low incomes, those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless and other hard-to-house clients.
Applications were accepted until 5 p.m. on March 22, 2017. Applicants will need to meet the eligibility criteria for the program and have an accepted offer in place by June 22, 2017. If you've already received the funds and are living in your new home, you must continue to meet all the terms agreed to in your promissory note.
If you have any questions, please contact Saskatchewan Housing Corporation toll free at 1-800-667-7567.
