Housing Needs Report Intake

The Housing Needs Report program is now receiving applications. This program is structured to reflect the local government planning areas that are required to complete housing needs reports, in accordance with provincial legislation. The application deadline is May 1, 2020. Based on the funding currently available, this may be the final intake for this program.

Funding is scaled based on the net population of each planning area (municipalities, electoral areas and local trust areas), and ranges from $15,000 - $70,000. UBCM administers this program on behalf of the provincial government.

Previous intakes have seen approximately 120 local governments funded throughout the province, either by individual applications or as part of regional collaborative applications. The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing has compiled a comprehensive data set available at no cost to local governments, in order to assist in the completion of a Housing Needs Report. 

Application materials are now available. Inquiries may be directed to UBCM’s Local Government Program Services by email or by calling (250) 952-9177.
