The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has made £4 million available through the Community Housing Fund Revenue Programme 2021/22 to award grants to eligible community organisations in England (outside of the Greater London Authority area).

The programme will help cover the revenue costs of project-specific activities that will support the development of community led housing proposals. The programme is aimed at schemes which can prove their deliverability and are at the later stages of pre-development.

The grant will fund pre-development work so that schemes can complete the work required to progress the scheme towards:

  • submitting a planning application, and/or
  • submitting a capital funding bid, and/or
  • getting to start on site.

To determine if the programme is the right fit for your community led housing scheme please read the Prospectus.

Complete the online eligibility checker. Once you have submitted the eligibility checker, an email containing a unique link to the online application form will be sent to you. Complete the eligibility checker as soon as you can and by 20th September if possible, so we can assess demand for the programme.
