Social Services

Secondary Suites and Garden Suites are now permitted in most residentially zoned properties in the County of Lennox & Addington. These smaller units are an attractive and affordable form of housing for a wide variety of residents, providing new rental units and a source of income for the homeowner.

Grants of up to $20,000 are available through Prince Edward - Lennox & Addington Social Services for those homeowners who subsequently use the secondary suite or garden suite to provide affordable housing to low and moderate income tenants. If you are planning to build a secondary or garden suite within your home or as an addition you may qualify.

Funding is limited and applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis. Once approved for the grant, projects must have a building permit within 30 days in order to remain eligible.
