Our £50 million Reopening High Streets Safely Fund (RHSSF) is playing an important role in getting people back to work, supporting our businesses and helping to reinvigorate our local communities.

This funding has been allocated to 314 local authorities in England on a per capita basis with a minimum limit of £30,000. Places have been able to incur expenditure on eligible activity up to the amount of their full allocation from 1 June 2020. Once final contracts have been agreed, local authorities can claim funding from Government in arrears.

More information on the RHSSF criteria, including an Annex detailing local authority funding allocations, can be found in the Fund guidance: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/reopening-high-streets-safely-fundguidance.
