The Henry Smith Charity has announced that organisations currently delivering or planning to deliver Housing First services in England, Wales and Northern Ireland can apply for grants of between £200,000 and £400,000 to make their services more effective and sustainable.
The Housing First Programme is a grants programme that offers stable, affordable housing alongside ongoing, intensive person-centred support to enable people to keep their housing and avoid returning to homelessness.
The funding is being made available to support small to medium sized organisations (between £100,000 and £5 million annual income) to deliver more sustainable and effective Housing First services. Projects can last for up to 4 years.
A total of £1.4 million is available during this funding round and the closing date for submitting an expression of interest is the 4th November 2019.
