Renters in BC are facing sky-high rents and increasing cost-of-living. A renters' housing grant will provide relief to low and moderate-income earners who pay more than 30% of their income to rent.
Support the renters' housing grant
The B.C. Greens’ rental housing grant would:
- Target low and moderate income earners who are paying more than is affordable on their rent.
- Close the gap between affordable rent and what renters are actually paying.
- Be a means-tested grant that applies to low and moderate income earners who are paying more than 30% of their income in rent.
The BC Greens would earmark $500 million for this program to ensure that it can provide meaningful support to renters.
This is part of the BC Greens' broader housing program, which aims to have an affordable home for everyone in BC by 2030.
