Affordable housing project announced in Miramichi

The provincial and federal governments are touting a new, 24 rental unit, affordable housing development in Miramichi.

Half of the units will receive rent supplement funding from the province to the tune of more than more than $1.3 million over a 20-year agreement.

Miramichi-Grand Lake MP Pat Finnagan says, "Through investments in affordable housing, our government is providing assistance to those who need it most here in New Brunswick and in all corners of the country."

The funding for the project comes from the $56 million Investment in Affordable Housing Agreement signed last year between the two levels of government.
