This week’s allocations by Homes England include developers and ‘for-profits’ for the first time, while omitting some big names
Homes England yesterday published its funding allocations for strategic partnerships under the government’s 2021-26 Affordable Housing Programme. The housing quango allocated £5.16bn to 31 bidding organisations, to deliver 89,466 homes.
Strategic partnership deals are funding agreements under which recipients get longer-term funding and more flexibility over how to use cash, in return for delivering more homes and other government priorities, such as modern methods of construction.
The table below compares these allocations to the first strategic partnership allocations, made under the 2016-21 programme. While that programme was much smaller overall, the comparison highlights some of the changing priorities of Homes England, and some of England’s largest housing associations.
