Manitoba investing $25 million to tackle homelessness and build housing

WINNIPEG — The Government of Manitoba is investing $25 million into various initiatives meant to combat the housing crisis, including $13 million for the development of new housing.

According to a press release, Manitoba Housing is planning on issuing a negotiated request for proposals to develop 212 social housing units through new construction, acquisition and/or renovation. This project is supported by a $13.1 million investment. Proponents can apply for up to $150,000 per unit.

Other investments include $2.6 million to make select shelters 24-7 service hubs, $3.4 million to develop 400 new community-based social housing units through rent-supplement agreements, and $5.8 million to expand and develop new Housing First teams.

“Homelessness is a complex issue that requires a co-ordinated, multi-faceted response,” said Families Minister Rochelle Squires in the release.

“We launched the province’s first-ever homelessness strategy, A Place for Everyone, to guide our whole-of-government initiatives over five years. Having a governance structure oversee the strategy is critical in ensuring it is implemented effectively and adapts to changing needs and priorities.”
