Sent on behalf of Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC):

Today (7 December), DLUHC published the prospectus and guidance (outside of Greater London) for the Single Homelessness Accommodation Programme (SHAP), a £200 million fund to deliver up to 2400 homes and support services for people sleeping rough or at risk of sleeping rough.

SHAP will provide supported housing, Housing First and housing-led accommodation for two target groups: adults experiencing multiple disadvantage who may have a history of rough sleeping and require high levels of support, and young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness or rough sleeping.

The prospectus contains an overview of SHAP and provides details of what will be funded and how to apply for funding.
