July 17, 2023 – The Ministry of Housing and Diversity and Inclusion announced over $1.7 million in funding through the National Housing Strategy Research and Planning Fund for the new research initiatives selected from applications across Canada.

The fund, administered by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, allows recipients to address key information and knowledge gaps in National Housing Strategy (NHS) priority areas, to better understand the housing needs of Canada’s most vulnerable populations.

The National Housing Strategy Research and Planning Fund “provides support to not-for-profit organizations, registered charities, Indigenous organizations and Indigenous governments for housing-related research,” to promote interest, involvement and capacity building in housing research outside of government.

According to a news release, the fund provides financial support for research through four different streams:

    • Planning Activities (up to $50,000) for initiatives that support the planning of research activities to help ensure sound methodology and impactful results.
    • Individual Research Projects (up to $100,000) for initiatives that address specific knowledge and information gaps.
    • Programs of Research (up to $250,000) for initiatives that include multiple projects, conducted over a period of time, on a particular topic or issue.
    • Knowledge Mobilization (up to $50,000) for initiatives undertaken to communicate research results and help translate research findings into action.
