Local and Regional TRHA Update

The remaining applicants for Torngat housing in Nain just got a little more anxious.

All that is left is the one home.

A decision won’t be made till Friday.

Margaret Fox is the Chairperson of the Torngat Regional Housing Association (TRHA).

Fox says the home is a previous TRHA house that was turned back over to them.

She says TRHA received a response from the Nunatsiavut Government on the final $1 million.

So far they’ve received $300,000.

On July 1st they’ll get another $500,000

Then the remaining $200,000 will be allocated on October 1st.

In October 2008, the Provincial Government allocated $8.2 million to all of the provinces aboriginal groups.

The province called it the Off-Reserve Aboriginal Housing Repair Program.
