Newman Court Garden, Basingstoke
There has never been a more challenging time for commissioners, developers and providers seeking to secure capital investment and/or sustainable revenue streams for extra care housing.
The information set out under the subtopic in the left-hand side menu offer a selection of useful resources specifically on access to general capital funding pots and also signpost to dedicated capital funding streams in England. In particular, we highlight the Department of Health's 2013-2015 (Phase One) and 2015-2018 (Phase Two) Care and Support Specialised Housing Fund arrangements, and the HCA's Affordable Housing Programme arrangements.
