The City of Edmonton’s Secondary Suites Grant program provided property owners with funding to help build new suites or upgrade existing suites to rent to eligible low-income tenants.
The program is now on hold. Complete applications received before February 28, 2020 will be reviewed.
Property owners who have been approved for grant funding must still meet the requirements of their five-year operating agreement with the City. Grant recipients must:
- Rent the secondary suite or garden suite to an eligible tenant earning within the Maximum Income Threshold by household size
- Submit Schedule A Tenant Information to the City of Edmonton to verify the eligibility of tenants occupying the suite
- Abide by the requirements for a landlord under the Residential Tenancies Act
The program was funded through the City’s Affordable Housing Investment Plan and was designed to increase the supply of affordable housing. The program met its goals and all available funding was allocated.
