Rental Assistance Program (RAP) – Spring Education Conference, April 24, 2021

Workshop Intro:

1 to 3 p.m.

In November 2020, CHF BC facilitated a virtual townhall on the new CMHC Rental Assistance Program (also known as Federal Community Housing Initiative – Phase 2, or FCHI-2) for housing co-ops reaching the expiration of their federally administered Operating Agreements. Representatives from The Agency for Co-operative Housing, Cana Management, COHO Management and CHF BC joined online to share the information about the new program and to answer questions submitted by co-op members. In this session, you will be able to ask any new or follow up questions about Rental Assistance Program to the panel of experts, including questions about the Temporary Rental Assistance Program that is about to launch on April 1.
