Rural and Remote Homelessness
Eligible recipients located in communities not eligible for funding through the Designated Communities stream (Winnipeg, Brandon and Thompson) are eligible for project-based funding that is available in all provinces under the Rural and Remote Homelessness funding stream. 

Indigenous Homelessness
This funding is used for projects delivered primarily by Indigenous organizations to address the specific needs of the off-reserve homeless Indigenous population.

Eligible activities and expenses must continue to meet the main community priorities:

  1. Provision of housing and support services
  2. Homelessness prevention and shelter diversion
  3. Connecting to health and medical services
  4. Client support services
  5. Capital investments

The full directives of Eligible Activities under the Reaching Home funding can be found here.

It is important that homeless serving organizations applying for this funding work collaboratively within their community to provide a collective response to the homelessness crisis.

Please review attached information procedure prior to applying. 

  1. Information Package
  2. Main Application
  3. Extension Application for existing projects
  4. Capital Proposal Form (required in addition to application for capital proposals)
  5. Wage Detail Spreadsheet (required in addition to application for staffing proposals)
  6. FAQ

Reaching Home funds cannot be used to duplicate services, or fund services that are under Provincial jurisdiction.  Applicants for funding for Indigenous projects must demonstrate that the proposed project meets a need in the community and has broad community support. Cost-matching by community partners is encouraged. In addition, projects selected for funding must not create a dependence on, or expectation for, ongoing funding.
