Social Housing Grant
Social Housing Grant is a grant given to Registered Social Landlords (housing associations) by the Welsh Government.
The grant aims to provide new affordable housing for rent or low cost home ownership.
Social Housing Grant (SHG) funds housing schemes that meet local needs and priorities as identified by local authorities. Since the 1980s nearly all new social housing has been provided by Registered Social Landlords (RSLs). One of the reasons is that RSLs can raise private finance to contribute towards the cost of new schemes.
SHG can be used to provide housing for rent or low cost home ownership through new build or the use of existing buildings. SHG can be used to support:
- schemes to increase the supply of affordable housing for rent
- schemes for older people including Extracare schemes
- Homebuy - to assist people to purchase a home
- schemes to address low demand and to support community regeneration
- schemes for people who need support with independent living.
