About the Home Program

The Home Program provides funding to non-profit organizations to deliver projects that increase housing stability and successful tenancies for affordable housing residents or people in housing need. Our priority areas are:

  • Education and skill building - Increase knowledge and skills to successfully maintain and remain in a home.
  • Financial empowerment - Strengthen financial inclusion, knowledge, behaviours and opportunities.
  • Community inclusion and integration - Increase participation, engagement and involvement with the local community, services and supports.
  • Initiatives that address housing instability for Indigenous people, Black and racialized people, and equity-deserving populations.
  • Initiatives that seek to understand the root causes of housing instability, or that seek to change systems, policies, and other legislation to support housing stability for Indigenous people at the systems level (i.e., research projects, educational opportunities).

There are three types of Home Program grants. These grants are for non-profit organizations that serve affordable housing residents or Calgarians in housing need, including housing providers and other service organizations. Download the Home Program grant guidelines here.

Community Grant – grants for new projects up to $25,000. These are grants for projects that stimulate innovative, lasting, positive changes that will increase housing stability and successful tenancies.

Partnership Initiative Grant - grants from $25,001 - $200,000 for new projects. These larger grants aim to leverage collaboration and partnership to reduce barriers to non-market housing.

Sustainability Initiative Grant – grants for projects that have received a Home Program grant in a past year and require more support for projects that have the potential to be scaled-up, replicated, or achieve sustainability without any grant in the future. Past projects funded through a Community or Partnership Initiative grant are eligible. There is an option to choose this Grant on both the Community Grant and the Partnership Initiative application forms.
