Community Housing Growth Fund

Community Housing Growth Fund


The Community Housing Growth Fund (CHGF) offers financial resources to support Nova Scotia’s non-profit and co-operative housing sector. The fund provides money, new tools and expertise, empowering community housing providers to increase the supply of affordable housing options through three program streams:

  • Capacity Building
  • Planning and Pre-Development
  • Research and Innovation

Organizations working in Nova Scotia’s community housing sector including non-profits, co-operatives, and academic institutions (in partnership with a non-profit) are eligible to apply.


The CHGF program is administered on behalf of the province by the Community Housing Transformation Centre. For more information about the funding streams, eligibility criteria and the submission process, please visit the program page here on the Community Housing Transformation Centre’s website.
