Dowry Gap funding

Dowry Gap Funding is paid to ten Large Scale Voluntary Transfer (LSVT) Registered Social Landlords.

Tenants voted to transfer their homes to these new bodies. Dowry provides financial support to enable the Welsh Housing Quality Standard to be met by 2020 and maintained afterwards.

The Standard requires homes to have safe and secure doors, windows, modern kitchens and bathrooms, and to be located in attractive and safe environments.

This is important as the quality of  tenants’ homes has a major impact for example on their health and well being, their children’s educational attainment and their ability to get and keep a job.

The amount of money each LSVT has been given by Welsh Government in 2017-18 is:

Trivallis (formerly RCT Homes) - £7,300,000

Newport City Homes - £6,500,000

NPT Homes - £6,200,000
