Nationwide Empty Homes Programme Goes Live

The Nationwide Foundation is offering grants and social investments to organisations which are bringing empty properties into use for people in need. Applications for grants and social investments of between £15,000 and £140,000 are invited between 1 May and 30 June 2013.

Priority will be given to schemes including one or more of the following:
• Projects which are financially sustainable, or which are working towards financial sustainability
• Projects incorporating training for NEETS and others who are out of work or low skilled
• Live / work schemes
• Environmentally friendly practices
• Asset transfer

Funding for the following costs can be applied for:
• The costs of refurbishment, including a fair contribution towards organisational core costs where this is required to bring empty properties into use as homes for people in need.
• Legal and other such costs associated with obtaining the empty properties (including landlord negotiation and asset transfer).
