£8m housing fund launched
Sheffield City Region’s £8m pilot Housing Fund has been launched today.
The majority of other funds currently available to support housing delivery are national funds, where competition between regions is extremely high.
By contrast, SCR’s Housing Fund is regional; available to support schemes delivered only within the nine local authority areas which make up SCR.
The fund will complement current national housing investment programmes, help to unlock development opportunities, and deliver much-needed new homes across the city region.
The Housing Fund offers a flexible approach to the allocation of monies, with various funding solutions available to meet the requirements of individual schemes across the region.
Expressions of Interest from public and private sector housing provider’s/delivery organisations are now invited for those schemes which are struggling to attract funding. They must be submitted by 15 November 2017.

If you are interested in applying for funding and/or want an informal chat about your proposal, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0114 220 3451.
