Learn more about your Direct Rent Supplement.

Direct Rent Supplements (DRS) are subsidies paid directly to Capital Region Housing subsidy recipients to help make their rent with a private landlord more affordable.  Capital Region Housing is not the landlord in this program.

Recipient households live in private rental homes and receive a monthly supplement amount to help make their rent more affordable.

This program is administered within the City of Edmonton and surrounding communities. The Direct Rent Supplement program is governed by the Rent Supplement Regulation and the Social Housing Accommodation Regulation.


Upcoming payments for monthly subsidies will be released from our bank (RBC) on the dates below. Cheques will also be mailed on the dates below.
