We are investing £8 billion over the three years 2008-11 in the provision of affordable housing through the Housing Corporation's Affordable Housing Programme. Of these funds the West Midlands region is set to receive around £460 million. This compares to expenditure on affordable housing through the Housing Corporation in that region of £280 million over the previous three years.
It is open to registered social landlords, other developers and local authority special purpose vehicles such as arm’s length management organisations (ALMOs) to bid to the Housing Corporation for funding. We recently announced our intention to invite local authorities who continue to directly manage their stock to bid on the same terms.
We do not hold information at constituency level.
