Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Planning, Licensing and Housing Services considered the report which set out the rationale to approve the receipt of grant funding from the Ministry of Housing Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) for the provision of services under the Rough Sleeping Initiative (RSI) programme.  The grant was part of the fourth year of funding under the Rough Sleeping Initiative programme.

 

RESOLVED

 

i.          That the Cabinet Member for Planning, Licensing and Housing Services approves receipt of grant funding from the Rough Sleeping Initiative Programme, to the sum of £1,626,960 as permitted under CSO 16.02 and 17.3.

 

ii.         That, pursuant to CSOs 16.02 and 17.3, the Cabinet Member approves the award of grant funding to relevant partner agencies listed in the table at 2.3, which were set out in the successful bid for funding.

 

iii.        Funding for 21/22 was separated into two tranches by MHCLG as a result of administrative delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Tranche 1 covered Quarter 1 21-22 and was not subject to a bidding process but a continuation of funding from 20/21. Tranche 2 covers the remainder of the financial year 2021/22.
