POLICY WIN: Investing in affordable housing
Affordable housing serves a critical purpose to support seniors, women fleeing violence, those living with disabilities, and individuals recovering from addiction and transitioning out of homelessness.
Alberta’s government is working to expand affordable housing through its 10-year strategy, Stronger Foundations, which commits to supporting 25,000 additional households.
Budget 2022 provides funding for the following project:
- $595,000 to Green Acres Foundation to build seniors apartments in Lethbridge
This is a WIN for the Lethbridge Chamber policy A Pathway to Fixing the Affordable Housing Crisis in Alberta (2021).
