Multi-Family Housing Incentives
The City of Prince George offers an incentive program for multi-family housing located in key growth areas that incorporates adaptable housing standards into 50 per cent of the units.
The program offers tax exemptions and reductions in development cost charges for market and non-market housing projects that include three or more attached units (single-family dwellings and duplexes are not eligible).
The program's goals include:
- Creating a wider variety of housing options to serve all of our residents.
- Developing housing that is more accessible for seniors and people who use mobility devices.
- Creating walkable neighbourhoods by developing multi-family housing in areas that are served by transit and close to amenities.
- Reducing barriers to non-profit housing providers developing affordable housing projects.
Update: 2020 will be the final year that applications for the Multi-Family Housing Incentives program will be accepted. All eligible projects must have a complete application submitted by the December 14, 2020 deadline in order to be considered for the program.
