Funds are part of a new federal $4.3 billion Indigenous Housing strategy to support improvements to First Nation and Metis housing
A new Indigenous group is seeking control of $300 million in federal government funds meant to deliver housing to remote and rural Aboriginals across Canada.
The fund, announced in the 2022 Federal Budget, is allocated towards urban, remote, and northern Indigenous communities. It is to be administered by Indigenous Services Canada, with support from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp.
The new National Urban, Rural, Northern Indigenous Housing Coalition (NURNIHC) is formed to provide ‘for Indigenous, by Indigenous’ housing solutions, according to a statement from the Aboriginal Housing Management Association (AHMA)
