To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, if he will publish the allocation to local authorities of (a) £15 million funding through the Protect Programme and (b) £10 million funding through the Cold Weather Fund.
On 5 November the Protect Programme was announced. The fund will provide a further £15 million to support the ongoing efforts to provide accommodation for rough sleepers during the pandemic. This programme will help areas that need additional support most throughout winter.
Local authorities who will be receiving Protect Programme funding have been informed. All local authorities are eligible for the £10 million Cold Weather Funds, to help keep rough sleepers safe this winter.
Our Policy and rough sleeping advisers are working intensively with councils on their specific local needs and challenges to develop delivery plans and confirm funding allocations for both these funds.
