2.12.22 - “Build new affordable housing units[.]”
Puisque le gouvernement provincial a contribué au financement de la construction de ces logements abordables, la promesse peut être considérée comme étant réalisée.
“Moncton’s Rising Tide is preparing to open a 21-unit affordable housing building in downtown, and the organization says its other buildings are either full or mostly occupied. “We’re ready to start moving people in here this week,” Dale Hicks, Rising Tide’s president, said in an interview”. Un peu plus tard dans l’article, il est indiqué que “Rising Tide received $15.4 million from the federal, provincial and municipal governments over three years to supply 160 units by 2023 to reduce homelessness in the city”.
“The department plans to invest in more affordable housing units as part of the provincial housing strategy which aims at reducing the rental housing waitlist by 25 per cent during the 10 years it covers.”
““Thanks to the new provincial budget, more work will be accomplished in the housing sector as the funding allocated to the department’s Housing Branch will increase by about 17 per cent, from $97 million last year, to over $114 million this year,” said Fitch. The department plans to invest in more affordable housing units as part of the provincial housing strategy which aims at reducing the rental housing waitlist by 25 per cent during the 10 years it covers.”
“The provincial government announced today its participation in the development of a 125-unit housing project in Moncton that will help support people in need and address homelessness. As part of its efforts to build vibrant and sustainable communities, the provincial government will invest $6 million over three years in the Rising Tide project. […] The group has a plan, supported by the city and the provincial government, to purchase and renovate properties that will provide 125 units of affordable housing for current users of homeless shelters in Moncton. The project also includes funding for the creation of up to seven community case managers, each of whom would serve about 15 clients.”
“Affordable housing is widely defined as housing that costs less than 30 per cent of a household’s income. That’s the definition both the province and the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation use.”
