Extending Support for Affordable Housing

Published: 3:51 PM | November 13, 2020

Halifax Water will be implementing some measures to support affordable housing, which the Halifax Water Board approved in October 2019, and the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board (NSUARB) approved on October 29, 2020.  

In a Regional Development Charge (RDC) application filed with the Nova Scotia Utility and Review earlier this year, Halifax Water requested the ability to defer collection of RDCs for up to ten years, with interest waived for the first two years for affordable housing initiatives as defined by the Halifax Regional Municipality.
