The Government of Alberta has redesigned its Rent Supplement Program to meet the needs of more Albertans, including working families and those most in need. Starting April 1, 2021, we are accepting applications for the Rent Assistance Benefit. Formerly, the Direct to Tenant Rent Supplement, this long-term benefit will continue to subsidize low income Albertans.
