The affordable housing market is in dire need of support given the decline in investment and the rise in the number of homeless and low-to medium-income people who face affordability problems. In this context, the upcoming InvestEU, together with the existing EU funding programmes, offers an opportunity for the housing market to scale up successful projects and come up with new creative and innovative solutions. However, more work is required to ensure the instrument meets the real investment demand from organisations on the ground and boosts the capacity of the housing sectors to develop investable solutions.

This Task Force meeting will discuss how the affordable housing market can make use of available funding opportunities and identify the main constraints and solutions to achieving this objective.
