In July 2018 Homes England published the prospectus that provides guidance for bidders to the £163 million that the government has made available across England 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.

Local Authorities can apply for Capital funding for infrastructure or local authority revenue grant to support community-led development. Details are available via this link: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/community-housing-fund
