Minor Amendments to the Housing Incentives Policy

Minor amendments to the Housing Incentives Policy (HIP) were approved by City Council on May 29, 2017. The updated policy takes effect January 1, 2018.

The amendments focus incentives towards current critical housing needs in Regina and are consistent with the goals of the City’s Comprehensive Housing Strategy and the official community plan.

The minor changes to the HIP will:

  • Ensure priority funding for charitable non-profit organizations by refining the definition of a non-profit corporation
  • Improve funding for affordable rental development by reducing the number of affordable home ownership capital grants to 20
  • Create more certainty for applicants by clarifying how applications received under earlier versions of the policy will be administered
  • Ensure projects address key objectives by increasing the minimum score to 40 for the Capital Grant Application Design and Development Score Card
  • Encourage the development of housing for those with special needs by refining the definition of an Assisted Care Rental Unit
  • Improve opportunities for non-profit organizations by updating the eligibility criteria for two-unit rental developments

A table summarizing the specific revision to the City’s current incentive programs can be found here. If you have any questions or comments, call 306-777-7000 or email chs@regina.ca.
