In December 2012, the Human Development Council began its role as the Community Entity for Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS) funding for Fredericton, Moncton and Saint John. HPS is a community-based program aimed at preventing and reducing homelessness by providing direct support and funding. As the Community Entity, the Human Development Council works with communities to develop Community Plans, issue Calls for Proposals, select projects to fund and administer funding and reporting requirements. For more information on HPS funding please contact Greg Bishop at greg@sjhdc.ca or by calling 506-636-8541, or visit the Government of Canadaís website by clicking here
