Submission intake for these Request for Proposals is closed.

  1. RFP# HDB2020-001 - Capital funding for new construction
  2. RFP# HDB2020-002 - First time home buyer assistance

Manitoba Housing is seeking proposals from qualified organizations that are interested in creating homeownership opportunities for low- to moderate-income families in Manitoba.

As announced in Budget 2019, and with funding support from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), Manitoba Housing is prepared to provide up to $2,000,000 in financial assistance as part of a two-pronged Request for Proposals (RFP). Capital funding is available through the first RFP (RFP# HDB2020-001) for the new supply (new construction, rehabilitation, and/or conversion) of homes for sale to eligible homebuyers. A second RFP (RFP# HDB2020-002) is concurrently available to provide financial assistance that supports the acquisition of homes by eligible homebuyers (such as through down payment and/or closing cost assistance). The total funding amount being reserved for both RFP’s is up to $2,000,000.

Proponents that plan to undertake both new homeownership supply projects and acquisition assistance projects must submit separate proposals (i.e., one proposal for any new homeownership supply project and one proposal for any acquisition assistance project).

Complete RFP details are located in the documents below. Proposal submissions must follow the application requirements as outlined in the RFP documents:

  2. Creating Opportunities for Affordable Homeownership Via Home Buyer Assistance
