New Housing Services program in response to COVID-19:

Rapid Re-Housing Program

The City of Kawartha Lakes and County of Haliburton are looking to partner with landlords to help end homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the current situation the most vulnerable are at even higher risk and the City and County are looking to landlords to help house our vulnerable community members.

The Rapid Re-Housing Program offers landlords:

  • Funding to help prepare the unit for move-in
  • Prioritized COVID-19 screening prior to move-in, daily screening post-move-in
  • Tenant choice
  • Last months rent guarantee
  • Three months of pre-paid rent
  • Ongoing tenant affordability--Canada-Ontario Housing Benefit, or another similar housing benefit going forward
  • Landlord support contact through Affordable Housing Program Coordinator, who will regularly check-in to see how the tenancy is doing, and who can help find resources to maintain the tenancy if problems arise
  • Tenants are prioritized to take the Rent Smart tenant education program later in 2020

For more information on the program, please refer to the Rapid Re-Housing Program Information Package and Tenant Information Brochure.
