Housing and Homelessness
The City administers funding from the federal and provincial governments for affordable housing and homelessness. This involves:
- agreements with the other orders of government.
- preparing and administering requests for proposals when funding is available.
- providing administrative support to the Community Housing Advisory Board, which makes recommendations to City Council on funding decisions.
- preparation and monitoring of contracts to the organizations and developers in the community who implement and fund projects.
