Friday, October 22, 2021

The Housing Catalyst Fund supports practical and collaborative projects which lead to larger change in the sector. The City’s role through this fund is to work with community groups and other stakeholders (housing providers, service providers, non- profit organizations, builders/developers) to facilitate and plan housing solutions that will enhance the quality for life for individuals and families and build a healthier community.

To be considered, projects must be solution focused and action oriented and fill a clearly identified need in the housing sector. Catalyst projects are intended to be concluded in approximately 1 year. Emphasis will be placed on projects that are led by or include a community agency. Applicants must provide an incorporation number. Please note this funding is only available to groups / projects based in St. John's.

Applicants can apply for up to a $30,000 grant per project. The application deadline is the last Friday in November.

The Catalyst Fund is a partnership between the Community Housing Transformation Centre and the City of St. John’s.

*Please see the Application Package which outlines the funding restrictions. Projects that align with the City’s priorities but do not align with the Centre’s priorities are only eligible for up to a $10,000 grant.
