Local non-profits that operate affordable housing units will benefit from a new Columbia Basin Trust program.
Housing initiatives manager Aimee Ambrosone says it’s aimed at energy retrofits.
Ambrosone says it will make the properties more sustainable, cost-effective, and energy efficient.
$2 million will be available and grants are expected to be in the $10,000 to $60,000 range.
The first intake is in May.
The Trust is working with the BC Housing and BC Non-Profit Housing Association to deliver the program.
