Rent Supplements

What is a Rent Supplement?

A rent supplement is a monthly payment that helps to bridge the gap between a tenant’s rent and what they can afford to pay.

Housing Choice Rent Supplement (HCRS)

The HCRS Program provides a monthly payment of up to $250 toward a household’s rent to help increase their housing affordability. Supplements are provided based on applicant eligibility and fund availability. The HCRS Program is funded by the City of Peterborough.

How can I get a rent supplement?

To apply for the HCRS Program, contact the Housing Resource Centre.

Please note that due to the high volume of requests for a rent supplement, there is no guarantee that a supplement will be available to you.
