In the attached, Table 1 shows the sums directly allocated from the Community Housing Fund by the Department (and its predecessor, the Department for Communities and Local Government) and Homes England over each of the four years that Fund has been in existence.

In 2016/17, grants were awarded by the Department directly to local authorities.

Over 2017/18, no grant was awarded from the Community Housing Fund.

The figures given in respect of grants allocated to the Greater London Authority in 2018/19 and 2019/20 represent allocations made directly by the Department in order to deliver the Community Housing Fund in London.

All remaining allocations in 2018/19 and 2019/20 were made by Homes England. The figures given in respect of allocations made by Homes England are the sums of the total grant allocated to the respective local authorities and the total grant allocated to community-based organisations within those respective local authority areas. These figures may differ from actual expenditure.
