The Home and Communities Agency is now inviting bids for a share of £1.7 billion grant funding for the 2015-18 Affordable Homes Programme outside London. Bids are sought for schemes which meet local needs and priorities in their proposed locations, including building more one bedroom properties in areas where these are in short supply. This will give more households who are under-occupying a social home an opportunity to move to a suitably sized home, and free up larger homes for larger families in housing need.
