Funding of more than £770,00 has been awarded to the Mull and Iona Community Trust to build family homes for social rent in Ulva Ferry on the Island of Mull.

The money comes from the Scottish Government’s Rural and Islands Housing Fund, part of a £30 million investment to increase the supply of affordable housing in rural and island areas.

This builds on work and priorities set out by the Islands Act to address population decline, tackle climate change, and improve transport, the delivery of public services and digital connectivity.

The Scottish Government is on track to reach its ambitious target to deliver 50,000 affordable homes across Scotland by 2021, backed by record investment of £3.5 billion.
