We have committed £150 million to bring empty homes back into use.

Last month we announced £70 million of funding for 95 local projects which will bring over 5,600 homes back into use as affordable housing. This is part of our wider approach to bringing empty homes back into use, set out in the Government's Housing Strategy for England.
