The Large/Urban Stream of the Housing Accelerator Fund provides incentive funding to local governments. The funding is meant to remove barriers and support the development of affordable, inclusive, equitable and climate-resilient communities.
To be eligible for the Large/Urban Stream, applicants must have a population of 10,000+ and be in a Canadian province. Approved participants can use incentive funding for investments in:
- Housing Accelerator Fund action plans
- affordable housing
- housing-related infrastructure
- community-related infrastructure that supports housing
The framework for determining the amount of incentive funding includes base funding, top-up funding and an affordable housing bonus.
NOTE: Municipalities with smaller populations, territories and Indigenous communities should apply for the Small/Rural/North/Indigenous Stream
