We are committed to tackling homelessness. For those who find themselves at risk of homelessness, we are investing over £1 billion in the Homelessness Prevention Grant over three years. Birmingham has been allocated £16.9 million between 2023/24 and 2024/25.

At the Autumn Statement government announced a further £120 million funding to help councils address Ukraine and homelessness pressures in 2024/25, including funding for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Our £11.5 billion Affordable Homes Programme delivers thousands of affordable homes for both rent and to buy right across the country.

We are also launching a £450 million third round of the Local Authority Housing Fund.  This will provide capital funding to local authorities to obtain better quality temporary accommodation for those owed a homelessness duty and to provide safe and suitable housing for those on Afghan resettlement schemes.
