Funding is available to all Local Authorities from my department to acquire homes on a targeted basis for Social Housing use.  Ultimately, it is the local authorities that identify housing need in their area and oversee and prioritise the development of appropriate responses to meet this need. My Department does not prescribe how this is implemented at local authority level.
