Brandon Homebuyer Assistance Program

The City of Brandon is pleased to offer the Brandon Homebuyer Assistance
Program thanks to funding support from Manitoba Housing and Renewal Corporation.

The program will assist renters who are eligible to transition to homeownership,
by providing funding equal to a 5% down payment and a portion of the associated closing costs by way of a forgivable loan.
The maximum forgivable loan is $14,000 with forgiveness earned over a ten-year period.       


All potential applicants must attend an in-person consultation with the Housing Coordinator prior to applying.
Applicants that have not attended a consultation will not be considered for the program.      


Deadline for applications is October 16th, 2019 at 4:00 pm.

  • Confirmation of your income and/or employment earnings (several most current pay stubs, one or two years tax assessment notices, letter of employment, T1 General, list of other income)
  • Name and address of employers for last 3 years
  • Your banking information (if at a different bank)
  • Proof that you have a down payment or a plan to get the down payment
  • An assets and liabilities list
  • Estimates for your monthly housing expenses, including utilities, property taxes and other fees, utility


Affordable Housing Strategy


Multi Family Affordable Housing Program

At this time the City of Brandon is not accepting any requests for capital grants for the construction of affordable housing, as the Affordable Housing Reserve has been depleted. 
We would be happy to hear about any projects that you have in mind related to affordable housing and place your name on a follow up list should additional funding become available.   
To discuss your interest in constructing affordable housing in Brandon, please contact Stephen at or Sandy at
