Affordable Housing Initiative

Housing is essential for healthy and resilient communities. This initiative helps ensure that Basin residents have access to housing that meets their needs by creating new affordable housing and helps retain existing affordable housing stock.

The Affordable Housing Initiative can help local governments and non-profit housing societies build new affordable housing units in the Basin by supporting proposal development and capital funding including support to install solar photovoltaic arrays, fibre optic cable and construction training opportunities.  We also support energy efficiency upgrades to existing older affordable housing through our Energy Retrofit Program.

Housing needs for Basin communities vary by location, size, demographic need and economic means. If your organization has a project idea, review the information below and reach out to Trust staff to explore options for potential support.

Since 2015 the Trust has:

  • supported the creation of 1,109 units of affordable housing
  • contributed $47.2 million to housing initiatives in the Basin
