Secondary Suites

The Secondary Suites Pilot Program is in its second year, increasing the supply of affordable long term rental housing for County residents. The interest free non-repayable loan of up to $25,000 is available to eligible owner-occupied or small landlords (fewer than 10 units) to build or renovate on existing residential properties.

To apply, you'll need to provide documents about:

    • Your property: Ownership, encumbrances, proof of insurance

If you receive the interest free, non-repayable loan you will need to:
