|The Rent Supplement helps low-income families, elderly and special needs households obtain affordable, adequate and suitable housing in the private rental sector and in non-profit affordable housing initiatives. The provincial government will enter into agreements with owners/operators of private rental housing to subsidize a portion of the homes in the rental property.
The province subsidizes the difference between the approved market rental rate charged by the landlord and the rent-geared-to-income (RGI) paid by the qualifying tenant.
|The amount of Rent Supplement is the difference between the rent-geared-to-income and the approved market rent for the affordable housing unit.
Manitoba Housing pays the housing initiative the monthly rent supplement and the tenant pays their portion of the rent as usual.
|An eligible tenant must:
Request an application to be mailed to you or pick up an application at one of the Manitoba Housing Leasing Offices
You may also forward an application directly to the non-profit housing organization that offers the Rent Supplement Program depending on availability.See the Rent Supplement Program listing with Non-Profit Housing Organizations (PDF) for more information.
