Rapid Housing Initiative

Delivered by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), under the National Housing Strategy (NHS), the Rapid Housing Initiative (RHI) is a $2.5 billion program that will quickly address urgent housing needs of vulnerable Canadians through the rapid construction of 10,000 new affordable homes.

Funding Announcements

Previously, The City was allocated $24.6 million of the $1 billion RHI that was announced by the Government of Canada on Sept. 21, 2020 to support the creation of 176 housing units in Calgary.

In July 2021, the Government of Canada awarded Calgary an additional $16.6 million to create up to 82 new affordable homes in Calgary under the expanded RHI program which provided an additional $1.5 billion in funding.

Details regarding a third round of RHI funding are expected to be announced by CMHC later this year.

Once the funding details for a third round of RHI funding are announced, The City will be working closely with non-profit affordable housing providers – who are ready and able to deliver much-needed homes – to submit an Investment Plan to CMHC to ensure Calgary maximizes every dollar available.
