The comments made by Robert Jenrick, the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, on 31 August 2021.
Creating more opportunities for home ownership is central to this government. This £9 billion funding is a landmark moment for our Affordable Homes Programme and will ensure good quality housing for all as we build back better after the pandemic.
This huge funding package will make the ambition of owning a home a reality for families by making it realistic and affordable.
We are also ensuring tens of thousands of new homes for rent are built in the years ahead, including social rent, so those on the lowest incomes can enjoy good quality, secure rented homes, built and managed by reputable providers.
