Secondary Suites Subsidy Pilot Project
Following the 2022 decision of Prince Edward County Council to approve $200,000 from the reserve for affordable housing, the Secondary Suites Pilot Project will continue for its second year to increase the supply of long-term rentals.
Eligible homeowners and small landlords (fewer than 10 units) could receive non-repayable loans of up to $25,000 to create or substantially renovate secondary units. Funding is an interest-free, non-repayable loan that is forgiven on the condition that the unit is affordable, and rented to long-term tenants for a minimum of 15 years. Interested residential property owners can get more information at www.pecahc.ca/apply
