Funding allocated for the Region’s Plan to End Chronic Homelessness

Regional Council continues to recognize the need for more supports for people experiencing chronic homelessness. Today, Council approved an allocation plan for $10.2 million in additional funding this year as part of the Region’s Plan to End Chronic Homelessness.

Council prioritized the original Fee for Service Requests at $3.1 million at a 10% reduction giving them $2.79 million and allocating the remaining funding $7.42 million to the other original Plan to End Chronic Homelessness budget requests.

This will accelerate the work to end chronic homelessness in Waterloo Region. A full report on the Plan to End Chronic Homelessness will go to Regional Council in April with recommendations.
