The HCA has released the Shared Ownership and Affordable Homes
Programme. It includes details of the bidding round for the
Affordable Homes Programme 2016 to 2021 which is now open.
As part of the programme, the government is making £4.7 billion
of capital grant available to Registered Providers between 2016 and
2021. However, the programme focusses on shared ownership with
little available for social or affordable rented accommodation.
The programme aims to increase the supply of new Shared
Ownership and other affordable homes in England by March 2021 and
is expected to deliver at least:
- 135,000 homes for Help to Buy: Shared Ownership
- 10,000 homes for Rent to Buy
- 8,000 homes for specialised housing
Funding outside London will be allocated by the HCA through the
programme. The Greater London Authority will deliver a separate
programme for London.
