UK Government Offering Grants to Support Homelessness Services in England

Funding for the development of strategic partnerships and innovative projects addressing homelessness and rough sleeping.

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) has announced an £8 million fund over the next three years to support the work of the voluntary and community sector in tackling homelessness and rough sleeping.

The Programme is divided into four individually biddable lots, each with a different objective and its own individual budget per annum:

  • Lot 1 – Increase the capacity and capability of the sector to prevent and relieve rough sleeping and homelessness (£850,000 to £1.2 million).
  • Lot 2 – Deliver a specific, specialist advice service to help frontline workers resolve individual cases (£750,000 to £950,000).
  • Lot 3 – Enable stronger local strategic partnerships (£450,000 to £600,000).
  • Lot 4 – Developing the faith and community sector (£175,000 to £225,000).

Applications are accepted from voluntary and community sector organisations in England with a proven track record of providing specialist delivery in the field of homelessness and working collaboratively across sectors. Consortium bids are also encouraged.

Bids will be considered for single or multiple lots.

The deadline to apply is 1 April 2022.
