The housing crisis disproportionately affects Londoners who are Black and from other ethnic minority backgrounds. While success in providing more genuinely affordable housing, and improving the quality and security of tenure in the private rented sector, help reduce disparities in housing for all Londoners, Black and minority ethnic Londoners benefit in particular – for example half of lettings of social housing are to Black and minority ethnic Londoners. I am pleased that both AHP programmes under my tenure are progressing well. The AHP 2016-23 is in its final year and we have hit every single target since the programme was agreed with government. The majority of the £4 billion funds dedicated to the AHP 2021-26 programme have already been allocated and contracts are currently being finalised with partners.
