As of 12 October 2020, local authorities are eligible for a series of payments from the Contain Outbreak Management Fund. We have committed another £465 million in funding for English local authorities through the local COVID alert level system. This funding will be provided to support proactive containment and intervention measures. Details of support made available have been sent to every local authority and will shortly be published on GOV.UK. This support is in addition to £300 million already allocated to local authorities in England for test, trace and contain activity.
