HBFI CEO Dara Deering said:
“HBFI was set up to improve the supply of new homes – for buyers, renters and people who need social housing. We are off to a strong start in our first year by funding the building of 616 new homes, including 150 social housing units, but we have a lot more to do.
We have actively engaged with the public and private sector to better understand the issues faced by housebuilders to make sure we can help address market needs. Housing solutions have to align with demographics and with our society’s housing needs. Social housing is a very real and pressing requirement and we are delighted to provide funding that directly increases the supply of homes for people who need them”.
