GENERAL PROGRAM CRITERIA:

The City's Agreement with the Province specifies that funds are to be
used for new, innovative community based programs which achieve one or
more of the following “outcomes”:

1) Assisting people to move from the streets to emergency accommodation;
2) Assisting people to move from emergency to permanent accommodation;
3) Preventing homelessness by supporting the retention of stable
accommodation.
In addition, priority will be given to:
4) Developing strategies which result in longer term solutions to
homelessness;
5) Funding projects which create efficiencies elsewhere in the “system”
of services to homeless people;
6) Providing direct services to homeless people or those at risk of
homelessness;
7) Including homeless people in projects through employment and in the
planning, implementation and evaluation stages; and 8) Including
qualitative and quantitative evaluation methods to ensure that the
program meets its goals and objectives and that individual projects are
effective.
