A $200,000 anonymous donation is going to help Muskokans find affordable housing.

During Monday night’s District council meeting, members of the Gravenhurst Rotary Club presented the cheque to the Gateway Homes Program.

The Gateway program provides eligible families and individuals with down payment assistance for purchasing a home.

Gord McNeice of the Rotary Club said the donation was earmarked specifically for the Gateway project.

It's expected to help at least 10 people every year for the next 10 years. The hope is that one day the Gateway program will become self-sustaining.

McNeice said despite all of the hard work and donations, there still needs to be more done to combat the problem of a lack of affordable housing in Muskoka
