Wiiji’wewin Rent Supplement Program

How it works

  1. Download and submit the application.
  2. Giwetashkad will review your documents. 
  3. If eligible, we will provide you with a one-time payment.
Example 1: An applicant has a gross monthly income of $1,400.00.
$1400 x 0.35 (35%) = $490.00; therefore, this applicant should be paying $490.00 for rent.
Example 2: An applicant has a gross monthly income of $1,200.00. The co-applicant has a gross monthly income of $800.00.
$1200 + $800 = $2.000.00; this is the gross household’s monthly income.
$2000 x 0.35 (35%) = $700.00; therefore, this household should be paying $700.00 for rent.
