Kawartha Lakes And Haliburton Offering Incentives For Affordable Housing Developments

KAWARTHA LAKES-Developers, community housing providers, non profits, landlords and homeowners are invited to learn about various incentives available to create affordable housing. Incentives apply to new construction, rehabilitation, secondary suites/additional residential units (ARUs) and subsidies within market units made available to assist Kawartha Lakes and the County of Haliburton to achieve their affordable housing targets.

“We encourage anyone interested in the program to submit an Expression of Interest application, even if the project will not take place this year,” commented Elise Karklins, Affordable Housing Program Coordinator. “An Expression of Interest is the first step in informing the municipality of a proposed project and helps to prepare for the work and planning involved for a future application.”

An Expression of Interest will result in a meeting with the Affordable Housing Program Coordinator, and possibly other municipal departments to assist with completing the final application. Expressions of Interest are always open for submission and are reviewed quarterly by Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton. To be considered during the 2021 third quarter review, please submit by August 15, 2021.

For more information on the Affordable Housing Targets Program (AHTP) and the incentives, please visit kawarthalakes.ca/ahtp. You can also either fill out the AHTP Expression of Interest 2021 online form or download the application and email it to Elise Karklins, Affordable Housing Program Coordinator, at [email protected].
