The two largest current home ownership supply side mechanisms in Scotland are GRO Grants for owner occupation and shared ownership. GRO Grant was launched in 1990 as an innovative funding mechanism to support the provision of home ownership and contribute to community regeneration. Shared ownership has been in operation since 1983 and is aimed at people who cannot afford the outright purchase price of a property suitable to their needs whilst also contributing to community regeneration. The following summaries focus on recent research that evaluated the effectiveness of these two initiatives.
