Rent Support Program (RSP)

What is the Rent Support Program?

The Rent Support Program is one component of the Investment in Affordable Housing Program. RSP provides a short term, (maximum 5 years) monthly rent subsidy to low income households to offset their high shelter costs. The maximum monthly assistance is $200. Payments are made directly to the Landlord.

The Housing Allowance Program is ran through the Ministry and is similar to the Rent Support Program. However, the Housing Allowance Program provides the client $200 a month to help with rental costs. Lanark County Social Housing does not run this program but assists the Ministry in finding applicants.
