Affordable Housing Now
June 7, 2022
This Lunch and Learn addressed the Affordable Housing Now Program, an initiative that supports affordable housing projects in Winnipeg participating in Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) affordable housing programs under the National Housing Strategy.
The program is designed to leverage federal funding programs available to projects that may require support from another level of government. It will provide eligible projects up to $2 million in grants to offset construction and permit fees, offer tax increment financing opportunities of up to 80 per cent of municipal incremental tax increases arising from development, and enable access to existing CMHC programs and resources.
Noah Yauk, an urban planner with the City of Winnipeg, and Angela Mathieson, president and CEO at CentreVenture, are joined us to discuss details about the program and answer questions
