From the 14th August 2017 organisations can apply for grants for building work for the refurbishment or the creation of bed spaces for young people who are homeless, or at severe risk of homelessness.
Funding of up to £75,000 will be available for full or part funding for the following types of building work:
- Refurbishment, conversion and extension of existing buildings – of empty properties and not-previously-empty properties
- New building – using traditional methods built on site or using precision construction built off site in factories.
Applicants must either own or be able to secure a minimum 8-year lease on the property or site and have a strong track record in supporting vulnerable young people. For refurbishment projects grants of up to £15,000 per bed space will be considered.
The closing date for applications will be 5pm on the 15th September 2017.
