Local authorities or housing associations who have already started or completed remediation work on Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding will be eligible for this funding, as well as those yet to undertake the work. We want to get funding to local authorities and housing associations as soon as possible, so that they can focus on the job of making their building safe. We will announce more details shortly about how councils and housing associations can apply for funding, including conditions attached to the grant.
