Apply for New Rental Development Funding

​​​The New Rental Development Program leads to the creation of affordable rental housing units using Federal and Provincial funding. ​

There are currently no opportunities for funding for the creation of purpose-built affordable rental units.

There are additional County financial incentives to support the creation of affordable housing.  The County Development Charges Rebate for Affordable Housing is available for rental development. The County of Simcoe has allocated $200,000 to offset county development charges paid by developers of affordable housing in the 2018 budget. ​

These funds are available to affordable housing development in the County of Simcoe's sixteen member municipalities. The recipient shall provide affordable rental housing in the form of rental development.

For further information, contact the Social Housing department at (705) 725 7215 Ext. 1119 or e-mail your request to iah@simcoe.ca.​
