Around 30 per cent of the savings from the Local Housing Allowance (LHA) Freeze will be recycled to use as Targeted Affordability Funding. No Targeted Affordability Funding was available in 2016/17 as there were no savings from the LHA Freeze due to zero inflation levels. The amount available for 2017/18 is £13.33 million and we will announce the funding for future years in due course
