In February 2018, we announced the successful Housing Infrastructure Fund projects to be funded through Marginal Viability Funding. In March 2018, we announced that we were working with 45 places through Forward Funding.

The first of the successful Forward Funding projects, to provide £291 million in funding to unlock up to 18,000 homes in East London through improvements to the Docklands Light Railway, was announced at Autumn Budget.

At Autumn Budget we also announced that the Housing Infrastructure Fund will increase by £500 million to a total of £5.5 billion, unlocking up to 650,000 new homes.
