The Department allocates funding to local authorities with arm's length management organisations (ALMOs) in the form of supported capital expenditure via the housing finance subsidy system. Local authorities, including those in London, allocate funding to their ALMOs via a management fee. This is a contractual matter as agreed between the local authorities and their ALMOs.

The Department does not hold a record of the proportion of the budget of each arm's length management organisation that is recharged to its parent local authority.
