Supportive Living Community Partnership Program

The Supportive Living Community Partnership Program, an initiative funded through the Poverty Reduction Strategy, provides operating grants to non-profit organizations to increase community capacity and provide a range of services and supports that promotes housing stability and promotes community capacity building on matters relating to housing and homelessness.

The Program supports a Housing First approach, which recognizes housing stability is critical to enhancing positive outcomes of other interventions that promote wellness, inclusion and self-sufficiency.

The Supportive Living Community Partnership Program is an interdepartmental initiative and supports the goals of:

Who Does it Serve?

Community agencies that support individuals who intersect multiple service provider systems and whose circumstances often result in them continuously cycling through social, correctional, mental health and/or addiction services. This population is often in crisis due to a lack of available affordable housing options and experience reliance on emergency shelter services on a regular basis.

Program Intent

Grants available to non-profit organizations are expected to meet one or more of following objectives:

  • Assist individuals with complex service needs to find and remain in safe, affordable, stable housing.
  • Support individuals with complex service needs to achieve greater self-determination by supporting the conditions which promote housing stability and increase skills and/or income to secure an income to live as independently as possible.
  • Provide opportunities through a range of supportive living services to complement existing services and/or to help address a gap in services to support the stabilization of persons experiencing homelessness and/or multiple barriers to permanent/long term housing.
  • Support community capacity building activities/projects, which will assist in the identification and development of a range of supportive living services necessary to prevent and address homelessness for individuals with complex service needs.
