Community-led Housing

You can access two types of grants for Community-led Housing projects: Community-led Buildings Pre-Feasibility Grant and the Community-led Buildings Project Support Grant.

Both of these grants apply to both community-led buildings and community-led housing projects.

Community-led Buildings Pre-Feasibility Grant

Amount of grant available

Between £1,000 and £10,000

What you can use this grant for

This grant will help you assess the feasibility of a community-led housing project prior to submitting a Community Right to Build Order or a traditional planning application.

If you have identified a possible community-led housing project and are assessing the way forward, a pre-feasibility grant will give you broad-brush information to help you progress.

When is the application deadline?

Applications for grant for 2017-18 can be submitted from 1 February 2017 until 1 October 2017. Expenditure through a grant must be completed by 31 December 2017.
