The government funds affordable housing through the Affordable Homes Programme. It does not announce funding on a yearly basis. The allocations of funding are as follows:

  • Affordable Homes Programme 2011 – 2015 £4.5 billion

  • Affordable Homes Programme 2015 – 2018* £2.9 billion

  • Shared Ownership and Affordable Homes Programme 2016 – 2022 £9.1 billion (including £1 billion of commitments from the 2015 – 18 programme).

    (* In addition to the 2015 - 2018 programme we also announced the “Rent to Buy loan scheme” of £200 million funding to deliver Rent to Buy homes.)
