Support the delivery of new affordable homes in the North

#OurNorth is showcasing the great homes and places NHC members have delivered for their communities using Affordable Homes Programme funding.  This includes homes for rent, for shared ownership, and for older people.

The NHC backs wider sector calls for an ambitious expansion of this programme. The North makes a huge contribution to its success, with one in three Homes England affordable housing completions taking place in the North. These homes contribute to the Government’s overall housing ambitions – and our members are ambitious to do more.

The Affordable Homes Programme plays an important role in the North, particularly as other funds have begun to be geographically targeted on areas of ‘high affordability pressure’. This targeting excludes the vast majority of the North – making the Affordable Homes Programme even more important to our communities.
