Funding priorities are based on community need as expressed through the consultation process with community partners
VANCOUVER – The city of Vancouver welcomes the community to review and provide input on the 2023 allocation of approximately $2,496,110 in Home Investment Partnerships Program American Rescue Plan (HOME-ARP) funding.
These American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds are administered through the HOME Investment Partnerships Program to benefit qualifying individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness, at risk of homelessness, or in other vulnerable populations. The types of activities that can be undertaken with this funding include:
- development and support of affordable housing,
- tenant-based rental assistance,
- supportive services; and
- acquisition and development of non-congregate shelter.
Funding priorities are based on community need as expressed through the consultation process with community partners. Current priorities include supportive services and housing for people who are experiencing homelessness.
The HOME-ARP Draft Allocation Plan is a substantial amendment to the 2021 Action Plan and can be reviewed here. The community is invited to submit comment via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org until 5 p.m. on Fri., March 3, 2023.
