The Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) made £100 million of funding available to help English local authorities alleviate pressures on local services, as a result of migration into their areas. This funding was identified from MHCLG budgets at Autumn Statement 2015. It is only available to English local authorities. As you know, MHCLG has no remit to finance the devolved administrations, where funding for local government is devolved.

The Controlling Migration Fund has a second element, constituting £40 million worth of immigration enforcement activity from the Home Office. This support is directed across the UK, so local authorities in devolved administrations are able to request it.
