The Affordable Homeownership Program aims to assist low-to-moderate income renter households, in Simcoe County, to purchase an affordable home by providing 10% down payment assistance in the form of a forgivable loan.
The Program provides renter households with the opportunity to move to homeownership thereby freeing up rental units, encouraging developers to build affordable housing and fostering demand.
Applicants are encouraged to apply even though there is a waiting list.
A percentage of available funding will be designated for applicants currently living in Social Housing or those who self-identify as Aboriginal households
