For the former United States federal agency, see United States Housing Corporation. The Housing Corporation was the definition of housing pdf-departmental public body that funded new affordable housing and regulated housing associations in England.
It was established by the Housing Act 1964. On 1 December 2008, its functions were transferred to two new organisations, the Homes and Communities Agency and the Tenant Services Authority.
The last Chairman of the Housing Corporation was Peter Dixon, and his deputy was Shaukat Moledina. On 17 January 2007, Ruth Kelly announced proposals to bring together the investment functions of the Housing Corporation, English Partnerships and parts of the Department for Communities and Local Government to form a new unified housing and regeneration agency. In the following months, Professor Martin Cave, Director of the Centre for Management under Regulation at University of Warwick, led the most comprehensive review of English housing regulation for 30 years.
