St Matthews Housing Association Limited (SMHA) is a housing association registered with the Department for Communities and based in Belfast. We provide housing consisting of general family housing, single adult housing and active elderly housing.
The Association is registered with the Department for Communities – the regulating body from which we receive capital funding for our property development programme. This funding is augmented by private finance to cover the full cost of provision. Our annual revenue funding is obtained from rent and service charges.
In terms of development – we welcome the addition of 11 new houses in Bryson Street with the help of APEX HA. We are delighted with these units and hope that continued partnership working will deliver other exciting development opportunities in the coming years. Our priority remains the Short Strand area and we hope to bring new housing to meet the existing need over these next few years.
We continue to invest in our housing stock – in total over £2m since our first stock condition survey in 2010.
Our homes meet Decent Homes Standard and with regular planned investment will continue to meet Decent Homes Standard.
