Public Housing for Families

This program provides affordable rental housing to families in need and offers rental rates based on income. The units are fully equipped with a stove, refrigerator and include heat and hot water. Some units are accessible for people with physical disabilities. There are units located across Nova Scotia.

This program is managed by regional Housing Authorities.

Am I Eligible?

To qualify for one of these units, you must complete an application form and meet the guidelines for income, residency and core need established by Housing Nova Scotia.

Special priority is given to victims of family violence, those whose homes have been condemned, or those who have a need to live near a hospital.

Rent is based on your income.
