What is Rent Assist or subsidized housing and how to apply for it?

Rent Assist is a Manitoba government program that provides low income people with monthly financial benefit to cover a portion of rental costs.

Permanent residents and Canadian citizens living in Manitoba and who are not receiving Employment and Income Assistance (EIA) may apply for Rent Assist. Depending on the income level, a maximum of $576 for single adult per month can be provided. Read the Rent Assist Facts for more information. Download the Rent Assist Application Form to apply.

To estimate how much benefits you may be able to receive, visit the Rent Assist Estimator.

Subsidized housing is public housing where you pay your rent based on 30% of your household income. Know more about subsidized housing here.
