HALIFAX, NS, March 28, 2022 /CNW/ - Everyone deserves a safe place to call home. Today, the Governments of Canada and Nova Scotia announced over $916,000 in grants to community housing groups across the province to help build knowledge and capacity for vital housing work in their communities.

The Community Housing Capacity Building Program, which is jointly funded through the Canada-Nova Scotia Bilateral Agreement under the National Housing Strategy (NHS), is responsible for the financing.  

The grants will fund governance and operations reviews, growth and development plans, create community land trusts, and other capacity building needs.

Organizations receiving grants:


"A safe place to sleep is not a luxury. It is a fundamental human right. As government, we are helping to make this a reality through helping community housing organizations undertake the tremendous work that they do. Today's news is a boost to the economic and social well-being of our neighbours across the entire country, and I am so pleased that this announcement includes investments right here in Central Nova in organizations like Viola's Place and the Old School Community Gathering Place." - The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, and member of parliament for Central Nova

"We need strong community housing organizations as we respond to the housing crisis. They know their communities well, and they know how best to meet their needs. We are pleased to support these organizations and help them build strength and expertise for the work ahead." ? John Lohr, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Province of Nova Scotia  

"There are some important questions we need to address in the changing housing market in Cape Breton. We need to think about what kinds of housing are best for newcomers, seniors, single adults, and low-income prospective homebuyers, and where they should be located. How do we integrate energy production into our homes and buildings, and how do we offer safe, affordable housing sustainably? This funding will allow us to address those questions as an organization." -Erika Shea, President and CEO, New Dawn Enterprises
