1. Summary

If you live in a Valleys Taskforce area you may be able to apply for a grant of up to £25,000 toward renovations.

Funding has been set aside by the Valleys Taskforce in partnership with local authorities to help bring empty homes in the valleys back into use.

This is available to owners who intend on living at the property once work is complete, or registered social landlords / local authorities who intend on purchasing an empty property to bring it back in to use for Social Housing.

For private owners, your local authority has to apply to become part of phase 2 of the scheme. The authorities currently signed up are:

  • Blaenau Gwent
  • Bridgend
  • Caerphilly
  • Carmarthenshire
  • Merthyr Tydfil
  • Rhondda Cynon Taf
  • Swansea
  • Torfaen

Certain areas within the following local authorities fall outside Valleys Taskforce boundaries:

  • Bridgend
  • Carmarthenshire
  • Neath Port Talbot
  • Swansea

Please use the Valleys Taskforce map to check that you can apply.
