Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy – Call for Proposals

Kamloops, BC – The City of Kamloops has put out a call for proposals for eligible projects under Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy (Reaching Home).

Reaching Home is a community-based program aimed at preventing and reducing homelessness across Canada. This program provides direct funding to urban, Indigenous, rural, and remote communities to help them address their local homelessness needs.

To help address the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak among people experiencing or at risk of homelessness, and to provide additional support to the homeless-serving sector during this period, the Government of Canada has announced an additional investment in the Reaching Home program.

The City is the Community Entity responsible for administering and managing federal Reaching Home funding. The Community Entity works closely with various partners in the housing and homelessness sector in Kamloops to ensure the Reaching Home funding is distributed to where it is most needed.

Reaching Home supports the goals of the National Housing Strategy, in particular, to support the most vulnerable Canadians in maintaining safe, stable, and affordable housing and to reduce chronic homelessness nationally by 50% by fiscal year 2027–2028.

Homelessness has an impact on every community in Canada. It affects individuals, families, women fleeing violence, youth, seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities. In 2016, an estimated 129,000 people experienced homelessness at emergency shelters.

To respond to the Reaching Home call for proposal, visit Kamloops.ca/Grants. Deadline to submit an application is December 4, 2020.
