NORFOLK COUNTY - The Province of Ontario is investing over $3.1 million dollars to support affordable housing in Norfolk County.

The money will be used to give people at risk of homelessness in Norfolk County a place to live, along with access to a wide range of services. The money from the project will come from the Home for Good program. Minister of Municipal Affairs Steve Clark was in Simcoe yesterday to make the announcement. He says providing people with a place to live is always a top priority.

"As we gradually and safely reopen the province, we need a strong community housing system that supports our most vulnerable and meets local needs. Projects like the renovated Norfolk Inn build on our government's work to ensure that everyone can find safe and affordable housing across Ontario."

The old Norfolk Inn, located at 41 Norfolk Street South in Simcoe, will be renovated into a two-storey, 32-unit supportive housing development. The new affordable housing complex will include seven accessible units, a community space and commercial units on the ground floor. Haldimand Norfolk MPP Toby Barrett says this project will also help people access a variety of support programs such as counselling and life-skills training.

"This is a critical project as it will provide some of the most vulnerable members of our community a roof over their head and access to programs they need to improve their quality of life. By providing affordable housing our government is helping more people stabilize their lives, find employment, and become contributing members of their communities."
