To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, when he plans announce the funding allocations for the Community Housing Fund.
7 December 2017
On 27 November 2017, I announced that the programme to deliver the Community Housing Fund will be launched in January 2018 and will be delivered by Homes England (currently the Homes and Communities Agency). Any appropriate organisation – including appropriately constituted community groups, local authorities and registered providers of affordable housing – will be invited to submit applications for capital and revenue grant funding to support community-led housing projects anywhere in England. The first allocations from the Fund in 2018 are expected to be made around Easter.
