Sudbury – The Ford government will provide an extra $10 million a year to help give homeless Indigenous people access to support and transitional housing to keep them off the streets.
The province made the announcement Thursday on the new funding for two Indigenous agencies, calling it a step forward for people experiencing or nearing homelessness.
“My ministry led consultations in this sector on how we can improve the offering on supportive housing,” said the minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Steve Clark.
“Based on that feedback, we are taking an all-of-government approach to better coordinate the services that we provide today. We need to make the system work better and work smarter across the platforms.”
