Rapid Housing Initiative
The City of Winnipeg is receiving $12.5 million of capital funding from the federal government under the newly announced Rapid Housing Initiative (RHI). The funding, which is being distributed through the Major Cities Stream of the program, will be used to expedite the delivery of affordable housing units to vulnerable people and populations targeted under the National Housing Strategy, especially those affected by COVID-19.
Submission period closed
The deadline to submit an initial expression of interest in RHI project funding has now passed.

Additional funding opportunities may be available through separate RHI streams; interested proponents should visit the CMHC website on the Rapid Housing Initiative for additional information.
