City Council has recognized the need for more affordable housing options within the City to help local residents and families.
TRAB is a two-year benefit program for working households or for those in between jobs. It is designed for households who may have trouble receiving priority for regular Rental Assistance Benefit (RAB) or community housing but still need help making their housing affordable.
Airdrie residents can learn more about the TRAB and eligibility at https://www.alberta.ca/rent-assistance.aspx.
Locally, the TRAB is being administered by Calgary Housing Company (CHC) on behalf of the Government of Alberta. Airdrie residents are eligible and should apply directly through the CHC website.
This is a one-time benefit introduced by the Federal government. It is a one-time payment of $500 to eligible applicants to help low-income renters with the high cost of rent.
