The Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton Housing Corporation is asking the county for a subsidy.

The housing corporation requested $96,720 from the county, which is over $10,000 lower than last year’s ask.

The corporation is subsidized by both Haliburton County and the City of Kawartha Lakes to provide affordable housing in the region.

K.L.H. C.E.O. Hope Lee says energy efficiency of its properties is helping keep costs down.

Lee says five of K.L.H’s properties were sold last year for an average price of $229,000, which is much more than she originally expected.

Lee says the K.L.H. portfolio will include 734 affordable housing properties by the end of 2018 in both Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County

County Warden Suzanne Partridge says she was very impressed with the report, which you can see by clicking here.
