Housing plays an important role in the development of Humboldt as a vibrant, growing community. To ensure the long term success of our community, in late December 2010, City Council approved the recommendation to appoint a Housing Task Force that is representative of Council and the needs of the community. The Community Housing Action Plan has been established and a variety of recommendations have been made.

Additionally, in the Spring of 2013 City Council approved a series of incentive programs to promote the development of affordable housing within the City of Humboldt. These programs include:
Rental Construction Incentive Program: This program assists in the development of new purposely-built rental housing, and provides the applicant with a municipal/provincial grant of up to $10,000 for each eligible new rental unit constructed. For the full details, click here.
The Rental Repair Incentive Program: This program assists in providing financial assistance to rental property owners to undertake repairs to units occupied by low-income tenants which will bring the units up to a minimum health and safety standards. For full details, click here.
Secondary Suite Construction Application: This program assists in the development of new secondary suites and the upgrading of exisiting secondary suites. Secondary suites offer an affordable rental option and can provide a revenue stream to enable homebuyers to enter the housing market. For full details, click here.
