Community Housing Fund still open and accepting applications until Monday 6 December

The Community Housing Fund is still open and accepting applications until Monday 6 December.  The £4 million fund was launched by the then Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) to increase community-led affordable housing.  The community-led approach involves community-based groups taking responsibility for local housebuilding and is intended to deliver housing that is affordable locally and remains under the control of the community, through land trusts or housing co-operatives.

The Community Housing Fund Revenue Programme 2021 to 2022 is being managed by the Community Led Homes Partnership (CLHP), assessing all funding applications and administering the grants. CLHP is a partnership of four community-led housing organisations:

  • Confederation of Co-operative Housing
  • Locality
  • National Community Land Trust Network and
  • UK Cohousing Network.
