DE?LI?NE??, NT, May 24, 2022 /CNW/ - Everyone deserves a safe and affordable place to call home. Affordable housing is key to Canada's pandemic recovery, including in De?l??ne?.

Today, Michael McLeod, Member of Parliament for the Northwest Territories, on behalf of the Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Housing and Diversity and Inclusion, alongside Paulie Chinna, Minister Responsible for Housing Northwest Territories, and ?ekw'aht??d?? Leeroy Andre, announced more than $2.6 million in funding to help provide 10 new affordable homes in De?l??ne?, a project led by the De?l??ne? Got'ine Government.

This funding will help renovate the former De?l??ne? Wellness Centre into new accessible units that will be prioritized for elders, women, single mothers, those with accessibility needs, mental health challenges, addictions and those that are experiencing homelessness.

New investments under the Rapid Housing Initiative will create thousands of good jobs in the housing and construction sector, grow the middle class, and build back stronger communities while getting us closer to our goal of eliminating chronic homelessness in Canada.

Quotes:

"There is no relationship more important to our government than the one we share with Indigenous communities. That is why through the Rapid Housing Initiative, over 40% of all units will support Indigenous housing across the country, in both rural and urban communities, including right here in De?l??ne? and throughout the Northwest Territories. This is our National Housing Strategy at work." ? The Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Housing and Diversity and Inclusion

"The 10-year, $72+ billion National Housing Strategy is working to build more housing that is affordable and meets the needs of Indigenous communities. Today's announcement in De?l??ne? will provide community members with access to new homes that are safe, stable, and accessible. There truly is nothing more important than having a place to call home. Today's announcement is just one example of how we're working to make a difference for those who are the most in need through the Northwest Territories." ? Michael McLeod, Member of Parliament for the Northwest Territories

"Effective partnerships, such as those Housing NWT has with the Government of Canada and the De?l??ne? Got'ine Government, are critical to addressing the housing needs of the Northwest Territories. Adding these affordable and accessible homes in De?l??ne? is an important step towards addressing community housing needs. Today's announcement is a great example of cooperation between three governments to provide effective housing support for the people who need it most." ? Paulie Chinna, Minister Responsible for Housing Northwest Territories
