Today the government has announced the renewal of the Community Housing Fund. £4 million in revenue funding has been allocated to this fund for 2021/2022 to support community led housing. The new Community Housing Fund aims to work hand in hand with the recently launched Affordable Homes Programme which provides grant funding to support the capital costs of developing affordable housing for rent or sale.
This success is due to the campaigning and lobbying of the National CLT Network to government for the renewal of the fund. The National CLT Network continues trying to secure longer-term government funding from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government for community led housing.
