Flexible Housing Subsidy Pool

Flexible Housing Subsidy Pool

The goal of the Flexible Housing Subsidy Pool is to secure quality affordable housing for vulnerable people who are experiencing homelessness. This funding has a narrow focus which is to remove the final financial barrier for a client to be housed or to meet Housing Quality Standards. It provides the missing piece they need to get them across the finish line.
