Heartland Housing Foundation reserves the right to evaluate the sustainability of an application for tenancy based on income. This ensures that tenants are not adversely impacted by their responsibility to pay rent monthly and supports the sustainability of our operations and our ability to serve the community. 

We will discuss with applicants what a sustainable tenancy could look like for them given their income. When necessary, we can suggest other housing options available within the region that may be more aligned with the applicant’s income.
