Government Invests $625,000 for Affordable Housing Units

Published on: 2020/07/31 - in News

Adam Vaughan, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development and Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing were in Kingston Friday to announce an investment of $625,000 toward 40 new rental units.

Scheduled to be completed by Fall 2021, this federal-provincial Investment in Affordable Housing Program will provide homes for at risk individuals and families. The program gives local communities the flexibility to address their local housing needs by funding new rental construction, home repairs, housing allowances, rent supplements or home ownership.

“We know that people across Ontario are struggling to find affordable housing they need,” said Steve Clark, MPP Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes. “This investment in a new 40-unit community housing complex will create more homes for the people in Kingston who need it most.”

“Home is a place of safety and refuge. Our government is dedicated to housing more Canadians which is why we are proud to have invested in this development in Kingston,” said Adam Vaughan, Federal Member of Parliament for the Spadina—Fort York district in Toronto. “These new units are more than just safe and affordable places to live, they are key to a better life for the residents who call them home.” View the video posted by Adam Vaughan today for more information:
