Answer for Affordable housing grants

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The average grant per unit for social rent that had completed via the National Affordable Homes Programme (NAHP) was £110,175. 

As noted in the previous MQ 4038/2013 the grant per unit in the current Affordable Homes Programme is based on an average payment rate per unit and it is not possible to disaggregate the grant rate for social rent from other rented homes.
