The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) was established from 1 December 2008. From that date until 31 March 2009, for those programmes which transferred to the HCA from Communities and Local Government, the HCA did not make any transfers of funding between regions. Nor were there any transfers of funding between regions in 2008-09 within the HCA's Property and Regeneration programme (this programme was delivered by the former English Partnerships in 2008-09 prior to 1 December 2008). There were however transfers of funding between regions during 2008-09 within the National Affordable Housing programme (this programme was delivered by the investment arm of the Housing Corporation in 2008-09 prior to 1 December 2008); this information is being collated and will be placed in the Library shortly.
