Veterans’ Capital Housing Fund – Major Capital Grants Programme Opens for Round 2

The Veterans Capital Housing Fund is provided by the Office for Veterans’ Affairs and delivered by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.

The major grants programme for capital projects is the third programme to launch in this Fund and the focus is on supporting projects that contribute to reducing veterans’ homelessness and ending rough sleeping.

Grants of between £75,000 and £500,000 will support capital projects that support new builds, significant refurbishment, or extension of accommodation for veterans who are at risk.

The funding is for projects that will:

  • Enable major refurbishments of existing social rented or affordable rented homes for veterans.
  • Enable extensions of existing buildings to increase the availability of veteran housing.
  • Increase the number of new build, homes/housing units available to veterans at affordable or social rents.
  • Ensure properties meet decent homes and energy efficiency standards.

Priority will be given to:

  • Single Veterans
  • Veterans and their families, including veterans who have shared custody arrangements for their children.
  • Veterans with disabilities or limited long-term health conditions.
  • Homeless, including rough sleeping Veterans.
  • Female Veterans
  • LGBT Veterans
  • Veterans leaving prison.

Larger grants of between £500,000 and £1 million are available for exceptional projects if they meet additional criteria.

Applications will be accepted from either:

  • A registered charity, that has been registered in the UK for at least three years and can show it works with Veterans or
  • A registered social housing provider or Registered Social Landlord in Scotland that can show it works with Veterans.

There are three more rounds of funding: one remaining in 2024 and two in 2025.

There is a two-stage application process.

The first stage is to submit an Expression of Interest by the deadline of 17 June 2024 (17:00).
