HALDIMAND—The Ontario government is putting people first by providing more than $1 billion in 2019-20 to help sustain, repair, and grow community housing and help end homelessness. The government also revealed the province’s new Community Housing Renewal Strategy, outlining a plan to transform a fragmented and inefficient system into one that is more streamlined, sustainable, and ready to help people who need it most.

Locally, $2.7 million has been allocated for the strategy implementation in Haldimand-Norfolk. This includes $1.489 million for the Community Homelessness Prevention Initiative, $732,000 for the Ontario Priorities Housing Initiative, $463,700 for the Investment in Affordable Housings in Ontario, and $17,284 for the Canada-Ontario Community Housing Initiative.
