Investment Programmes


Capital Investment Programme

The Social Housing Investment Programme may invest in social housing projects or social housing institutions (SHIs) in accordance with the investment criteria set out in the social housing Regulations. Capital investment is made through Restructuring Capital Grants, Provincial Institutional Subsidies, and Debt Funding. There are instances where delivery agents are able to contribute their own equity, or may secure donor funds.



Institutional Investment Programme

The institutional investment programme has been specifically created to provide financial assistance to SHIs for gearing up capacity to achieve accreditation, funding for project feasibility studies to bring a project to a stage where an application for grant funding is likely to be successful, and to provide funds for special intervention in the event that, after completion of the implementation stage, either the SHI or its projects are in distress.
