Covid Winter Grant Scheme Supplementary Estimate New!

Decision maker:  Executive

Decision due:   25 Mar 2021

Lead officer:  Viki Elliot-King

Notice of proposed decision first published: 15/03/2021

Reason for urgency:
At the Executive Meeting on 2nd December 2020, how the Covid Winter Grant funds would be distributed was debated and agreed. At the same meeting, the Leader of the Council stated the intent that "should it be necessary, we will find more funding, via a properly accounted supplementary estimate, to support those most in need". It is estimated, due to a recent increase in demand for support amongst vulnerable families, that the current grant will be exhausted during week beginning 15th March. A supplementary estimate of £100,000 is proposed. This now needs to be formally signed off as soon as possible by the Executive.

Anticipated restriction: Open  -
