The purpose of this Request for Proposals is to award funding to housing providers to deliver support services to tenants of affordable housing units. Providers may either deliver supports directly, or in a formal partnership with an experienced support provider. Support services must be flexible and personalized to the needs of each tenant.  The aim is to promote housing stability and improved quality of life.

Funding decisions will be based on the information included in the Application, in addition to factors such as ensuring an equitable distribution of funding for services across the City and the total funding available.

It is anticipated that projects will be funded for 24 months, from April 1 2018 to March 31 2020.
