The North Shore Rent Bank is a community service offered by Harvest Project. It’s available for any eligible North Shore residents and also for existing Harvest Project clients. Through our rent bank we offer short term, no interest loans to those who are at risk of eviction or essential utility disconnection due to a temporary shortage of funds. Also, our Rent Bank can provide a security deposit if current housing is deemed unsafe or its become necessary to move to different housing for other reasons.
As with all operating rent banks, potential clients must meet minimal loan-qualification and repayment requirements. We invite rent bank applicants to call our Reception at 604-983-9488 during business hours to get connected with our Financial Case Worker. Alternatively, you can submit an online pre-assessment to begin your application process here: https://bcrentbank.ca/northvancouver/.
