The Home Program
The Home Program provides grant funding to projects that directly increase housing stability and successful tenancies for affordable housing residents or people in core housing need. It is funded by The City of Calgary and has four priority areas:
- Education and skill building - Increase individuals' knowledge and skills to successfully maintain and remain in a home.
- Financial empowerment - Strengthen individuals' financial inclusion, knowledge, behaviours and opportunities.
- Community inclusion and integration - Increase participation, engagement and involvement of individuals with the local community, services and supports.
- COVID-19 response - Support for housing providers and organizations serving vulnerable populations in dealing with added risk, challenge and hardship due to COVID-19 to maintain stable housing through the pandemic.
Please note: Financial relief to cover lost wages, rent payments and utility bills are not eligible for Home Program funding.
