Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland stopped in Kitchener Tuesday to announce a $400 million top up to the federal government’s Housing Accelerator Fund.

It was one of a suite of a housing measures announced by the federal government the same day, in advance of the 2024 budget.

Freeland said the additional funding is aimed at allowing municipalities to cut red tape to build more homes faster.

“Because the best way to be sure everyone can afford a home is to increase supply and to do it quickly,” Freeland said.

Since launching the $4 billion fund last year, the federal government has signed agreements with 179 municipalities across the country, including Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge. Nationally, the Liberals say the funding will accelerate the construction of more than 750,000 homes over the next decade.

Freeland said in Kitchener, it will fast-track the construction of 1,200 new homes over the next three years and 37,500 over the next decade.
