In 2013-14 MHCLG introduced the business rates retention scheme, under which local authorities retained a proportion of the business rates that they collect. A number of specific grants from other Government Departments were transferred into the business rates retention scheme at this time, including the Department for Education’s Early Intervention Grant.

In order to maintain the visibility of a number of named, non ring-fenced, elements of funding within the local government finance settlement, the Government currently publishes a Core Spending Power visible lines table (link below). The Early Intervention Grant is one of the visible lines set out in this table. To reflect the fact that local government is transitioning away from a world where councils are dependent on central government grants and towards greater self-sufficiency, these visible lines are shown at a national and local level within local authority Core Spending Power.
