HCA releases more Kickstart cash

The Homes and Communities Agency has released another ВЈ51m of Kickstart Programme funding in the second wave of schemes to be unlocked through round one of the Kickstart Programme.

This cash will allow work to continue at 27 housing schemes across the country and comes on the back of ВЈ10.2m Kickstart money awarded by the HCA in September to unlock almost 750 affordable and market sale homes, across 10 schemes.

The total number of homes released through Kickstart now stands at 2,750 across 37 schemes with an investment of over ВЈ60m, according to the government.

Sir Bob Kerslake, chief executive of the Homes and Communities Agency said: “This latest Kickstart money combined with funding through our standard affordable housing programme puts us in an ever stronger position for delivery of much needed new homes.

“As a result thousands more people will have a new quality home at a rent they can afford, or will be helped to take the first steps into home ownership.”
