As announced in March 2012, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) will receive an additional £100 million from April 2013. The MOD will target the extra investment to generate maximum impact for defence and for the benefit of service personnel and their families.

We will bring around 550 service family accommodation (SFA) properties up to the highest standard for condition and refurbish around 600 single living accommodation rooms. The extra investment will also mean that in areas of high demand 100 vacant SFA properties will be made ready for occupation and new homes purchased.
