The Centre de santé communautaire du Grand Sudbury-Homelessness Network is a community initiative that provides financial assistance to help individuals who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness. In case of emergency, financial assistance may be provided to eligible clients as a last resort to prevent evictions, utility disconnections and secure permanent housing. This program is for clients who are not receiving income support from Ontario Works (OW) or Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP). If the client is receiving either OW or ODSP, they must be referred to their individual caseworker to apply for the CHPI fund through Ontario Works.
Clients must apply for the CHPI-assistance, provide the required documentation, and the case worker must review the file in order to determine the client’s eligibility.
