Who can apply?

Only organisations can apply for the Rural and Islands Housing Funds (RIHF) – individual people can't.

You can apply if you're a:

  • community organisation
  • local council or housing association
  • development trust
  • private landowner
  • private developer e.g. a house builder

You can't apply if you've received funds for this project from the Affordable Housing Supply Programme (AHSP).

You can't ask for funding to buy land if you've already had Scottish Government funding for this.

More information about the fund's conditions is available on the gov.scot RIHF guidance document.
