Portable Rent Supplement Program

Interior Community Services manages 16 portable rental subsidies within the community under 3 separate operating agreements.

Program Information

  • Subsidies are based on the difference between 30% of client income and the market rent plus an administrative fee.
  • There is a maximum rent (ceiling guide) based on bedroom size for the municipal area.
  • Each private market rental being considered by the program for accepted subsidized clients must be assessed prior to approval of supplemented payments.

  • Individuals/couples/families with a low gross household income
  • Individuals, families and seniors with mental, physical or psychiatric disabilities
