The Building BC: Supportive Housing Fund represents an investment of $1.2 billion over 10 years to deliver an additional 2,500 new homes with 24/7 support services for people who are experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of homelessness.
Following the success of the Rapid Response to Homelessness program, the Province is launching the Building BC: Supportive Housing Fund as part of Budget 2018. This rounds out the Building BC initiatives including:
- Building BC: Community Housing Fund – close to $1.9 billion over 10 years to deliver 14,350 affordable new rental homes, built through partnerships with municipalities, non-profit housing providers, housing co-operatives, and Indigenous organizations
- Building BC: Women’s Transition Housing Fund – $734 million over 10 years to build and operate 1,500 new units of housing including transition houses, safe homes, second-stage and long-term housing
- Building BC: Indigenous Housing Fund – $550 million over 10 years to build and operate 1,750 units of social housing both on- and off-reserve
BC Housing will lead the creation of these new projects in partnership with non-profit housing providers, government authorities and community groups. The buildings and land will be owned by the Province.
