Government grants for affordable housing (in England)

Published 4th July 2018

The government is making available £163 million across England up to 2020 - 2021 through the Community Housing Fund. The Fund aims to support an increase in housing supply in England by increasing the number of additional homes delivered by the community-led housing sector; to provide housing that is affordable at local income levels and remains so in perpetuity; and to deliver a lasting legacy for the community-led housing sector in the form of an effective and financially self-sustaining body of expertise within the house building industry in England.

Funding outside London is being allocated by Homes England across 2 phases. A separate programme for London will be delivered by the Greater London Authority. This is in addition to £60 million funding that has already been allocated directly by government to 148 principal councils in December 2016.

Under phase 1 of the Fund, Homes England is making available grants to eligible organisations to support:

  • applications for revenue funding for capacity building and predevelopment costs, including revenue grants to local authorities to support community groups
  • capital bids for associated infrastructure costs which will support community housing development

The fund will be administered by Homes England who are contributing to a special feature on affordable housing in the January 2019 edition of The Clerk magazine.
