One of the biggest expenses we face is the cost of acquiring land on which to build our safe, decent, affordable homes. In every community in which we build, Habitat for Humanity seeks support from local municipalities to help us improve the affordability of the homes we’re building through:
- Donations of unused government owned land
- Reduced or waived land transfer & development taxes and fees
- Access to low-cost financing or one-time investments in social infrastructure projects
- Broadened public sector investments in social housing beyond rental units to include affordable home ownership models
Contact Habitat for Humanity Ontario Gateway North’s team if you would like to discuss any of these partnership options.
