Community Housing is provided to assist families who, because of their income, cannot obtain adequate accommodation at the current market rate. Community Housing consists of duplexes, townhouses or apartments. Priority is given to families with dependent children living in poor or overcrowded housing conditions or paying a high percentage of their income for rent. We allocate housing based on need according to government regulations.
The rent for Community Housing is calculated from the gross income (total family earnings) and is equal to 30% of that amount. The rent includes heat and water. The tenant is responsible for electricity and any hook-up costs.

The Rent Supplement Programs have been established by Federal and Provincial Governments to help address the housing need throughout Alberta.
Red Deer Housing Authority (RDHA) administers these programs for Red Deer, Sylvan Lake, Rocky Mountain House, Innisfail and area.
Subsidy payments to private landlords and tenants are issued directly by RDHA.
Please Note: No new applications for rent supplements are being accepted at this time while the existing programs are being reviewed for consistency of benefits and to ensure households that need assistance most are prioritized.
