By the end of August deadline, MHCLG received applications to fund cladding remediation on 156 buildings owned by local authorities or housing associations. We need to carry out the required due diligence before we can take decisions on eligibility, confirm the total amount of funding required and start to make payments. We will still accept applications from building owners who have missed the deadline.
