Apply for assistance to pay your rent

The Rent Supplement Program matches Yukoners who are eligible for social housing with participating landlords. We pay the median market rent directly to the landlord and the tenant pays us 25% of their income. This program uses the same application form as Yukon Housing Corporation's rent-geared-to-income (social housing) program.

Eligibility

  • Your total household income falls below the established Household Income Limits for the community.
  • You are a Yukon resident for a least 12 months.
  • Contact us for detailed eligibility requirements.
