First Nation, Inuit, Métis Urban & Rural 2012/15 Housing Program
Request for Proposals 2014
The “First Nation, Inuit, Métis Urban & Rural 2012/15 Housing Program” is intended to target gaps where significant demonstrated need has been identified, but provision of Aboriginal housing through previous programs has not taken place. Preference will be given to communities that have been identified based on the incidence of low to medium income households that have not received “First Nation, Inuit, Métis Urban & Rural Housing Program” rental allocations. Some of those communities are North Bay/West Nipissing, Timmins, Kitchener, Chatham-Kent, Peterborough, and Barrie. In addition, proponents who have densification opportunities available (i.e. land and/or buildings purchased with prior funding that would support additional development) that would allow additional units to be efficiently delivered, may apply. To encourage economical use of all resources, including land acquired or optioned during previous programs, additional units may be built on existing serviced land that is suitably zoned.
To be eligible, proponents must meet the eligibility criteria set out in Section 3.2 of the guidelines. Proponents responding to this request for proposals must follow the order of the format in their submissions. Whether using provided forms or creating an original document, the format (completed sections and same numbering) must be used.
