Central Okanagan Rent Bank
The rising cost of living means that there are many people who are only a paycheque or two away from not being able to pay their rent. At CMHA Kelowna we have a mission to create a mentally healthy community, and we believe that having a place to call home is part of the foundation of good mental health.
We are pleased to announce that we will be launching a pilot program, called the Central Okanagan Rent Bank, which will help to increase the housing stability in our community for individuals who are experiencing short-term financial difficulties. The program will offer interest – free, repayable loans as well as access to relevant supports and services to eligible renters in the Central Okanagan.
The Central Okanagan Rent Bank will be in the pilot phase from January-March 2021 as we test the program process and connection to services. We will be taking applications for participation in the Central Okanagan Rent Bank in April 2021.
