The affordable housing projects delivering the houses of the future.

The programme aims to create demonstrator schemes to help inform us about the type of homes we should support in the future.

The Programme, which is funded by £90m over three years, seeks to stimulate the design and delivery of new quality, affordable homes to:

  • increase supply as part of the 20,000 target
  • speed up delivery of homes to the market
  • trial new housing models and methods of delivery that address issues such as pressing housing need; fuel poverty; demographic change; help carbon reduction targets
  • prove the replicability of innovative housing models.

The programme is split into three phases:

Year 1: 2017-18 

In 2017/18 the programme funded affordable housing projects from Registered Social Landlords and Local Authorities. 22 schemes were approved however only 20 proceeded.

Year 2: 2018-19

This will start in April 2018 and will fund innovative projects from both private companies and social landlords. Applications for funding must be received by Thursday 12 July 2018.

Year 3: 2019-20

Information on Year 3 will be released later.
