Grants to British Columbia nonprofit organizations, businesses, government agencies, educational and public health institutions, and tribal entities in eligible areas to address homelessness during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Programs must take place within the municipal boundaries of the City of Kamloops.

The Government of Canada’s Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy (Reaching Home) is a community-based program aimed at preventing and reducing homelessness. It will provide direct funding to urban, Indigenous, rural, and remote communities to help them address their local homelessness needs. Funded is provided by the Government of Canada’s Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy.

Reaching Home Directives:

  • Priority 1: Housing Services: Housing services are those that lead to an individual or family transitioning into more stable housing that has been deemed appropriate and safe. 
  • Priority 2: Prevention and shelter diversion: Prevention includes activities aimed at preventing homelessness by supporting individuals and families at imminent risk of homelessness before a crisis occurs. This includes supporting individuals and families who are currently housed but at-risk of losing their housing, and preventing individuals who are being discharged from public systems (for example, health, corrections, and child welfare) from becoming homeless.
  • Priority 3: Health and Medical Services: To enable communities to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak, Reaching Home has added a new temporary category of eligible activities and expenses. Communities are still encouraged to continue connecting individuals to clinical, health, and treatment services (includes mental health and addictions support) through case management, and deliver harm reduction services.
  • Priority 4: Client support services: Client support services include individualized services to help improve integration and connectedness to support structures, such as the provision of basic needs and treatment services. They may also include services to support the economic, social and cultural integration of individuals and families.
  • Priority 5: Capital Investments: Capital investments are intended to increase the capacity or improve the quality of facilities that address the needs of individuals and families who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness, including those that support culturally appropriate programming for Indigenous individuals and families.
  • Priority 6: Coordination of resources and data collection: Coordination of resources refers to activities that: (1) enable communities to organize and deliver diverse services in a coordinated manner and/or (2) support the implementation of the Homeless Individuals and Families Information System (HIFIS) or the alignment of an existing Homeless Management Information System with federal coordinated access requirements.

Estimated Total Program Funding:


Estimated Size of Grant:

There is no restriction or maximum on the amount of funding an applicant may request. The quantity and quality of proposals received will determine the number of projects funded and the amount of funding each project receives.

Term of Contract:

All funding must be spent between April 1, 2022, and March 31, 2024.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Projects currently receiving RH funding are eligible to apply.

The following groups and projects are eligible to apply for RH DC BASE funding:
- Not-for-profit organizations;
- For-profit organizations as per 3.2;*
- Municipalities;
- Indigenous organizations (Indigenous organizations may include, but are not limited to, incorporated for-profit and not-for-profit Indigenous controlled organizations, Indigenous controlled unincorporated associations, Indian Act Bands, Tribal Councils and Indigenous self-government entities); and
- Public health and educational institutions.

*"For-profit organizations may be eligible for funding provided that the nature and intent of the activity is non-commercial; not intended to generate profit; based on fair market value; in support of program priorities and objectives; and in line with the community plan."

Geographic restrictions: Given the transient nature of the homeless population, and to prevent transmission between nearby communities, Designated Communities (DC) and Indigenous Homelessness (IH) stream recipients may now fund sub-projects that are located outside of their traditional service boundaries. Investments under the Indigenous Homelessness stream are still intended to meet the specific needs of the off-reserve Indigenous population.

For ineligible activities, see:
