The CAA Advisory Committee has identified supportive housing focus groups/ priority populations for BC Housing’s CAA supportive housing resources.
Between March and July 2019, The CAA Placement Committee will make placement decisions to include the following “focus populations” where possible:
- Priority for individuals who have been experiencing homelessness for 3 or more years; and who are 45 years of age or older.
- Priority for individuals who have been experiencing homelessness for 1 or more years; and who are 55 years of age or older.
- The Advisory has also clarified that a minimum of 33% of placements will be offered to individuals who selfidentify as Indigenous. (and will meet the age priority groups where possible)
The above focus groups will be reviewed in the summer of 2019 and may be revised accordingly. An update will be available in September 2019 or sooner. The CAA Placement Committee will make placement decisions consistence with community focus, vulnerability, history of homelessness, building and site criteria.
