£50m available through the ‘Move On’ Fund 30/05/2019 Labelled as Development, Finance

The Government has provided updated information for the £50million available across England (outside London) up to 2020/21 through the 'Move On' Fund. The fund is part of a package of measures that have been announced through the Government's new Rough Sleeping Strategy.


The 'Move On' Fund aims to free up hostel and refuge spaces by increasing the availability of affordable move-on, or second stage housing, for rough sleepers and those in hostel accommodation, as well as victims of domestic abuse currently living in refuges who are ready to leave this type of provision but might otherwise not be able to access the next stage of housing.


The fund provides capital grants contributing towards the costs of developing move-on accommodation and revenue funding will also be made available to be accessed by successful bidders for the on-going tenancy support and facilitation costs to ensure that those accessing the accommodation are able to sustain their housing.


Funding outside of London is being allocated by Homes England through a Continuous Market Engagement (CME) process. There is no fixed bidding window and the programme will remain open to receive new applications throughout the funding period.


£50million has already been made available for schemes in London through the Greater London Authority (GLA).


Full details of the fund and how to bid can be found in the Move On Fund prospectus and the latest Supplementary Information for Bidders.

Bidding is open to local authorities as well as housing associations, private sector developers and community groups. Organisations interested in applying for funding are invited to contact the Homes England area investment teams to discuss their proposals.
