The Building BC: Community Housing Fund is an investment of close to $1.9 billion over 10 years to develop 14,350 units of mixed-income, affordable rental housing for independent families and seniors.
BC Housing will work with non-profit organizations, housing co-operatives, and local government to create this additional supply through the submission and approval of project proposals.
The program does not include housing with support services or residential care components.
