Community Housing in Peterborough City & County 

There are several types of Community Housing available in Peterborough City and County.  Sometimes called ‘Public Housing’, ‘Non-Profit Housing’, ‘Social Housing’, and ‘Subsidized Housing’, the main types of Community Housing in Peterborough City and County are:

  • Rent-Geared-to-Income Housing (RGI)
  • Affordable Housing
  • Co-Operative Housing (Co-Op)

Rent Geared-To-Income Housing (RGI)
Rent-Geared-to-Income Housing (RGI) is a very affordable form of housing where the tenant’s monthly rent is calculated based on their level of income. The rent is usually set at 30% of income, meaning that tenants only pay what they can afford.

How to Apply: In Peterborough, there is a centralized waiting list to get into RGI Housing.  The waiting list is managed by Housing Access Peterborough (HAP). You can pick up an application form at HRC, or at the HAP office and on their website. 

Special Priority Placement (SPP): If you are experiencing, or have experienced abuse in the past three months or you are currently fleeing abuse, you can apply and request for Special Priority Placement (SPP) by completing HAP’s special priority due to abuse form.  For more information about how to apply for SPP, please see the How to Apply section of the HAP website or contact HAP directly.

HRC Can Help: If you would like help to apply for RGI Housing and/or SPP, please contact us.

Affordable Housing
In Affordable Housing rent is set at or below average market rent.  The rent amount is not geared to the tenant’s income.  To be eligible for this housing your income must fall below certain limits. Click here for a list of some affordable housing properties available in Peterborough City and County.

How to Apply: Applications for Affordable Housing are only accepted when there are units available.  There is no centralized waiting list because the units are owned by many different landlords. This means that you will have to complete a separate application for each unit you want to apply to.

HRC Can Help: If you would like help to apply for Affordable Housing please contact us.

Co-Operative Housing (Co-Op)
Tenants who live in Co-Op Housing are actively involved in the operation of the Co-Op housing development. This might include: attending meetings, being a part of the board of directors, doing yard/maintenance work and/or providing administrative support. The rent in Co-Op Housing varies from RGI to Affordable.  Co-Ops follow different rules and legislation than other types of housing.

How to Apply: You can apply for Co-Operative housing through Housing Access Peterborough and by directly contacting the housing Co-Operative.

HRC Can Help: If you would like help to apply for Co-Op Housing please contact us.
