Does anyone offer grants? If so, how do you allocate them? Is it done on a fist come-first-serve basis or do you have some form of point scoring matrix? How much do you offer? What's the eligibility criteria?
We're working on a new loan/grant policy whereby the remaining 25% of the loan is non-cyclable / written off providing the owner complies with the terms of the agreement.
We're unsure whether grants should be for letting, selling or owner occ or just letting. Or whether it should be limited to those with social outputs i.e. let at afforable rent, renovated by charities etc.
Any thoughts/experience/advice would be gratefully received.
