Housing action plan

The City of Quinte West has submitted an application for over $3 million dollars in funding to support local affordable housing initiatives through the Housing Accelerator Fund. 

The Housing Accelerator Fund, a Government of Canada grant administered by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), provides incentive funding to local governments to encourage initiatives aimed at increasing the housing supply and the development of affordable housing.

The City’s Housing Action Plan outlines seven initiatives that align with the fund’s application criteria and that will help increase the affordable housing supply in Quinte West. The City’s housing plan includes investing in the College Street Affordable Housing project, launching a new online permitting program for developers, and providing financial incentives to homeowners who create accessory dwelling units in their existing homes. 

Affordable housing is one of the key strategies in the City’s Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Plan.
