North Peace Housing Foundation provides property management services for 163 family housing units, operating under two programs: the Alberta Community Housing Program and the Alberta Rural and Native Housing Program.
The province owns all of the dwellings under this program, and any operating deficits are fully funded by the province through an annual budget review process. Management and tenant selection are delegated to the local housing operators.
Alberta Community Housing Program
The Community Housing Program is designed to provide affordable rental accommodation to low and moderate-income families, senior citizens, the physically challenged and others who are unable to obtain adequate and affordable housing in the regionís private sector market.An excerpt taken from Alberta Seniors
The Community Housing Program provides subsidized rental housing to low-income families, senior citizens, and individuals with special needs who cannot afford private sector accommodation. Applicants whose income falls below local income limits are eligible to apply (refer to Core Need Income Thresholds document). Management and tenant selection is delegated to the local housing operators. Applicants are given priority based on need, as determined by income, assets, and current housing condition. A tenant's rent, which includes heat, water and sewer expenses, is based on 30% of a household's adjusted income. The tenant is responsible for electricity, telephone and cable television, as well as any additional services they may request (i.e. parking).
Alberta Rural and Native Housing Program
The Rural and Native Housing Program is designed to assist low-income eligible households in obtaining affordable rental accommodation in rural communities, generally, with populations of 2,500 persons or less.
