The budget for the supply of new affordable housing in 2014-15 is £1,239 million. Our Affordable Homes Programme is on track to deliver 170,000 new affordable homes between 2011 and 2015, with £19.5 billion of public and private funding. Over 144,000 homes were delivered by the end of September 2014. (DCLG Affordable Housing Supply, 2013-14 (16 October 2014), table 2012, Affordable Housing starts and completions funded by the HCA and GLA (20 November 2014). We are confident that we will meet the target.

217,000 affordable housing have been delivered from April 2010 to September 2014.

£38 billion of public and private investment will help ensure 275,000 new affordable homes are provided between 2015 and 2020. This means over the next parliament we will build more new affordable homes than during any equivalent period in the last twenty years.
