Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS)

HPS is now closed and not accepting applications. Please check back in 2018.

The Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS) is a federally-funded, community-based program that aims to prevent and reduce homelessness by providing direct support and funding to non-profit agencies.

The causes and consequences of homelessness are complex. Homelessness affects a diverse cross-section of the population that includes youth, women with children, and seniors. Many factors can contribute to an individual being homeless, which can make it difficult for individuals to regain self-sufficiency the longer they have been homeless.

Recognizing that homelessness is a shared responsibility, HPS works to enhance partnerships to find longer-term solutions to homelessness, strengthen community capacity, and build sustainability.

Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) is the local organizing committee responsible for guiding HPS in Peel Region. Members are chosen through an open call for volunteers and represent the diversity of our community. All are committed to helping end homelessness in Peel. The Region works with the CAB to set funding priorities and recommend projects for grants. Currently there are thirteen members. Read CAB Members' Biographies (PDF).

Community Plan

In line with federal requirements, the Region of Peel and the Community Advisory Board has developed the HPS Community Plan which identifies existing conditions in Peel and identifies funding priorities for 2014 through 2019. The plan was approved by the federal government in September 2014 and will be updated annually. Read the HPS 2014-2019 Community Plan (PDF).
