The process for application of subsidy follows 5 steps that align with the construction of your home. We have provided an outline of the process below:

We have outlined the process for applying for a Private Housing Subsidy below:


Step 1: Application and Supporting Documents

All applicants will be required to complete an Application Form to receive the Private Home Subsidy. It is important to remember that a few steps coincide with your application including:

  1. Mortgage Preapproval
  2. Grant of Superficie
  3. Approval of Eligibility for Program Subsidy

Your local Housing Administrator will assist you with these steps.

Step 2: Review of Application by your Local Housing Administrator

The applicant will submit their completed application and supporting documents to the local Housing Administrator. These documents will be reviewed to ensure they are finalized and are then submitted to the Director of Housing or your local Housing Committee.

We have created an Application Checklist that can help you with preparing your application.

Step 3-4: Process by Local Government and Application for Subsidy to the Cree Nation Government

If all documents and forms are verified as complete, the Director of Housing (or Housing Committee) will make a recommendation to the local Treasurer.

The application, along with supporting documents is then sent to the Cree Nation Government where it is reviewed by the Treasurer and Regional Housing Planner.

You can contact your local Housing Administrator to follow-up on the status of your application.

Step 5: Disbursement of Subsidy

The Cree Nation Government Treasurer upon receiving a duly completed application form will disburse the recommended subsidy amount. At this time, the applicant will be asked to sign a Contribution Agreement.

The amount of the subsidy will be transferred to the applicant when all relevant requirements are met.
