LGA Housing Advisers Programme Opens for 2020/21

The Local Government Association’s (LGA’s) Housing Advisers Programme is designed to support local authorities deliver a project that helps meet the housing need of their local area.

The programme funds the provision of an independent adviser to offer bespoke expert support to local authorities undertaking a specific project that works towards – delivering homes, reducing homelessness, or generating savings or revenues.

For 2020/21, the programme will aim to:

Make a significant difference to the housing crisis

Build capacity in councils, so there is a lasting impact long after the HAP funding ends

Ensure that projects can become sustainable in the longer term

Create learning about what works, so that the wider sector can benefit from the programme.

The programme will award up to £20,000 to each project for the purpose of securing expert advice in transforming how a service or partnership meets the housing need of communities.

Local authorities in England at all levels, either individually or as a partnership are eligible to apply.

The deadline for applications is 7 January 2021.
