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.

The coordinated access process (CAP) is a method of matching individuals experiencing chronic and episodic homelessness to a housing program that meets their needs.
Whether set up by persons experiencing homelessness or others in the community, makeshift camps in our parks and other green spaces pose a risk to health and safety for those who use them and for the community at large.
A coordinated event where volunteers count persons experiencing homelessness and ask them a number of questions to get a snapshot in time of those experiencing homelessness in the community.
Many people are being housed successfully in Red Deer, but there is still work to be done.
Read personal success stories of those working in or being assisted by Red Deer’s housing system.

The Community Housing Advisory Board acts as an advisor to Council on affordable housing, homelessness, services/activities related to the goal of ending homelessness, and funding allocation within the community.
