Temporary Rental Assistance

Section 95 co-ops whose operating agreements with CMHC expired prior to April 1, 2016 where excluded from the temporary assistance of the Federal Community Housing Initiative (Phase 1) and were not included in the initial roll-out of FCHI-Phase 2. In early 2021, CMHC agreed to provide temporary rental assistance to these previously excluded co-ops and their members.

This program is different from FCHI-2 for co-ops with operating agreements that expired  after March 31, 2016 . The assistance is one-time (for up to a year) and the period to apply for entry into the program is very short (ending March 8, 2021).
