Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Still no rental help for pensioners forced to move By ANDY OGLE HcnM Staff Writer Three months after being forced to move from their downtown redevelopment area several pen- sioners are still receiving no rental assistance despite rent increases that range up to The city's social service department says 18 old-age pensioners who were moved from the downtown area are paying more rent without help Although they got help mov- ing and with utility bills and in some cases their first month's rent paid none have since received any one official said Rent increases were such that one person is now paying 53 per cent of his pension in- come on another 48 per another 43 per another 40 per cent and others on down to 20 per cent Some actual rent increases SO to SO to to to to to 50 and so on The city social services department has been in con- tact with officials of the Alberta Housing Corporation since September concerning a rent supplement program which could be applied to the people affected by relocation But the program which would allow public housing lunds to be applied to existing private rental accommodation is apparently still a matter of top-level negotiations between the federal and provincial governments through Central Mortgage and Housing Cor- poration and the Alberta Housing Corporation.
