This month, the Agency is excited to welcome a new batch of co-op clients to the Rental Assistance Program (FCHI-2).
After the federal government’s announcement of $118.2 million in new funding earlier this year, co-ops with operating agreements that expired before April 2016 were able to sign on to receive rental assistance.
Over the coming weeks, these new co-ops will meet their Rental Assistance Officer and learn about the Agency’s online modules that help co-ops manage the program. They will also be introduced to our new tools like the recently launched Online Rental Assistance Calculator, as well as the Online Action Plan / Self-Assessment that helps them plan for the future.
Some brand-new Agency clients will also learn about the Agency’s annual reports about their performance and how to file an Annual Information Return.
The Agency is thrilled to have more co-ops take advantage of federal government funding to help keep housing charges affordable for their low-income members.
