Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy
for Communities Identified as “Other Urban Areas” in B.C.

2022-2024 Capital Investments – Call for Proposals (CFP)

Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy (RH) is the redesigned federal homelessness program that replaced the Homelessness Partnering Strategy on April 1, 2019. Reaching Home continues to be a community-based program aimed at preventing and reducing homelessness by providing direct support and funding to urban, Indigenous, rural and remote communities across Canada to help them address their local homelessness needs and ensure Canadians maintain safe, stable and affordable housing. Reaching Home supports the goals of the National Housing Strategy, in particular, to support the most vulnerable Canadians in maintaining safe, stable and affordable housing and to reduce chronic homelessness nationally by 50 percent by 2027-2028.
