Social Housing Development Programme

The Social Housing Development Programme (SHDP) provides social housing in Northern Ireland. 

It is managed by the Housing Executive’s Development Programme Group (DPG), on a 3-year rolling basis. DPG provides grant funding to housing associations, so that they can build or buy new social housing. 

Please note that the Social Housing Development Programme is frequently updated.
