An new plan is being presented today to Hamilton’s Emergency and Community Services committee and its one that poverty activists say is badly needed.
The Affordable Housing and Homelessness Action Plan is asking for 42.7-million dollars a year over 10 years from the provincial and federal governments.
That is over and above the 46-million dollars Hamilton already contributes annually for social housing.
The 10 year housing and homelessness plan has to be submitted to the province by the end of the year.
The report identifies five outcomes advocates say are critical to ensure everyone in the community has a home including an increase in housing affordability, inventory and choice.
