The Rimoka Housing Foundation in Ponoka is among seven organizations to receive an investment from the provincial government.  

An investment of $1.2 million will be allocated for improvements in 245 rental units in affordable senior housing facilities, in Edmonton, Calgary, Grande Cache, High Prairie and Ponoka.  

“This funding will ensure these affordable housing units are maintained and get appropriate repairs to keep them accessible, safe, and stable places for Albertans to call home,” said Jason Nixon, Minister of Seniors, Community, and Social Services. “By repairing existing units and facilities, we are saving taxpayer dollars, investing in our affordable housing infrastructure, and supporting housing providers to make sure facilities are meeting Albertans’ needs.” 

Repair and maintenance projects include replacing windows, repairing elevators, and renovating interiors.
