Federal Government Announces Rapid Housing Funding for St. John’s

On Friday the federal government announced $5 million in funding for St. John’s, one of the 41 recipients of the third round of the Rapid Housing Initiative’s Phase 3 Cities Stream.

The city has awarded the funding to Stella’s Circle which will renovate a former office building into 15 new homes for women who are experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic abuse and/or may have had prior involvement with the criminal justice system.

The projects include a conversion of office space into six homes and a newly constructed extension which includes nine homes.

Also included in today’s announcement, is a combined $6.1 million investment that will create a total of 20 new homes through the Rapid Housing Initiative Phase 2.

Six new affordable homes are complete and operational in St. John’s.
