Housing Supply Challenge Support Program
Led by Evergreen, the Support Program supports applicants of the Housing Supply Challenge by providing guidance, mentorship, and resources to develop and improve their submission.
Everyone deserves a safe and affordable place to call home. To help foster innovation in housing supply solutions, the Housing Supply Challenge, led by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), encourages residents, stakeholders, and experts from across Canada to propose innovative solutions that help break down the barriers that limit new housing supply.
The Challenge will distribute $300 million in funding over five years through various unique rounds. Successful submissions will first receive funding to prototype or incubate their proposal, and then finalists will receive additional funding to implement it.
The first Challenge Round—Data Driven—invited applicants to submit data solutions or methodologies that provide decision-makers with better information to make housing supply decisions.
The second Challenge Round—Getting Started: Pre-development Processes—invites applicants to propose and develop locally relevant solutions that remove barriers to the development of housing that is affordable, with a specific focus on the pre-construction phase of projects.
The third Challenge Round—Northern Access: Supply Chain Solutions for Northern and Remote Housing - invites applicants to propose innovative solutions that will improve efficient and affordable access to materials and resources in northern and remote regions
What is the Support Program?
The Housing Supply Challenge Support Program, run by Evergreen, supports applicants of the Housing Supply Challenge by providing guidance, mentorship, and the resources needed to develop and improve their submission.
Through the Housing Supply Challenge Support Program, applicants learn about the application process, meet with experts who provide guidance on developing their submission, and connect with other potential applicants to learn about their challenges and potential solutions.
Evergreen is providing support through the initial (Stage One) and final (Stage Two) application process.
