CHRA Shares Recommendations on Rapid Housing Initiative with Honourable Ahmed Hussen

Friday, February 26, 2021

On February 8, 2021 The Canadian Housing and Renewal Association (CHRA) and the Community Housing Transformation Centre (CHTC) hosted a consultation session on the Rapid Housing Initiative (RHI) to better understand how the initiative can improved as a second phase and inform the federal government. The feedback received was invaluable in determining needed changes to the program should it be renewed: something that the House of Commons Finance Committee recommended to the Minister of Finance last week.

Using this feedback, CHRA Executive Director Jeff Morrison sent a letter with recommendations on how to improve RHI to The Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development on February 25, 2021.
