Rent Supplement Programs

Rent supplements help people with low-incomes by making rent more affordable in the City and County of Peterborough. Through an application, rent supplements assist people in financial need and people who are on the Centralized Waiting List for social Housing. There are two ways that the rent supplement amount is determined: flat-rate or geared-to-income.

Flat-rate rent supplements bring the cost of rent for the tenant down by a fixed rate between $100-$250 per month. Rent supplements are paid to the landlord. Low-income verification is required for tenant eligibility.

Geared-to-income rent supplements bring the cost of rent for the tenant to 30% of their monthly income, plus or minus utility amounts. The rent supplement pays the remaining amount to the landlord. If the tenant’s income, income source or household composition changes, then both the supplement and the amount of rent they are required to pay may change. Low-income verification is required for tenant eligibility.

Forgivable Grants for Peterborough

Some rent supplements are attached to units in specific buildings. Others are “portable”, which means that the tenant can move and the rent supplement can be moved with them into their new home. Rent supplement availability is limited.
