Community Led Homes – Start Up Support Programme (Deadline: 14 February 2020)
Maximum value: £10,000

The Start Up Support Programme has been established by Community Led Homes, which is run by four leading community-led organisations: Confederation of Co-operative Housing, Locality, National Community Land Trust Network and UK Cohousing. They have joined together to make it easier for communities to access support and build a lasting movement.

The programme is funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) through the Community Housing Fund. The Community Housing Fund aims to support an increase in housing supply in England, by increasing the number of additional homes delivered by the community led housing sector; to provide housing that is affordable at local income levels and remains so in perpetuity.

Community led housing is a way that people and communities can come together to solve their own housing challenges and provide high quality and affordable homes. The homes are managed or owned by the community in the way they want.

The Start Up Support Programme aims to help groups of local people to develop their own community led housing solutions. The grant programme is targeted to support the earliest stages of a community led housing group’s development and help community led housing projects at an early stage to explore options, to enable community led housing solutions to become a reality.

An in-store vote each month will determine which projects are funded.

Three local community projects will be voted on in Tesco stores each month across 200 regions throughout England, Scotland and Wales. In each region, the project that received the most votes from all stores in their region will receive a grant of up to £4,000. The second placed project receives up to £2,000 and third placed up to £1000. This means that each year more than 7,000 projects will receive funding through this scheme.
