The Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS) is a community-based program aimed at preventing and reducing homelessness by providing direct support and funding to 61 designated communities and to organizations that address Aboriginal homelessness across Canada.
In Nova Scotia, the HPS programme operates through community-based advisory boards - for HRM (the Community Advisory Board), and for rural Nova Scotia (the Rural and Remote Advisory Board). These bodies are comprised of diverse groups of shelter and service providers, federal and provincial government representatives, the faith community, and people with first-hand experience of homelessness.
HPS has funded 7 projects, for a total of $5,308,422.
