EHN new Practitioner Guide reviews HCA options for supporting empty homes

In order to try and clarify the constraints on HCA's ability to fund empty homes work outside of its normal grant funding regimes the Empty Homes Network has undertaken a review of the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008 which established the HCA and sets out its powers and any limits thereon, or special requirements.

We've identifed quite a wide range of work that could be funded by the HCA within the existing framework as well as some frustrating restrictions and areas of uncertaintly. The new Practitioner Guide, with the catchy title Review of statutory constraints on HCA’s powers to fund empty homes work, can be downloaded from here but is only available to full Corporate or Collective members or Subscribers and of course you will need to be logged in.
