This grant program was approved at the January 25, 2021 City Council meeting (item 6.4).

Grant Eligibility

To be eligible for this grant, a project must: 

  • Be a new development project that begins construction in 2021
  • Have a construction value of $10 million or more, and provide 50 or more net new housing units
  • Be constructed in the Centre City area, as identified in the program map
  • Have an approved development permit before applying
  • Have applicants declare financial need and certify that the program changed their decision to proceed with development.

Applicants should review the Grant Program Guide and Procedures for more detailed information before applying.

Projects taking advantage of this program will not be eligible to participate in other City development incentive grant programs, including the Development Incentive Program and the Brownfield Redevelopment Grant Program. These programs serve different, but related purposes. 

Successful applicants will effectively receive no municipal tax increases for a period of five years (2022-2026). Each year, a grant payment will be made that is equivalent to the increase in municipal taxes over the 2021 ‘baseline’ taxes paid. The education portion of property taxes will not be offset by the grant program.
 

Program Duration and Limits

The total amount available for this program is capped at $23 million. Individual grant amounts will vary.

Applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis.
