We expect responsible entities (such as a management agency appointed by the building owner) to inform all leaseholders and residents if they apply for Government funding. Responsible entities also should provide regular updates to leaseholders and residents on the progress of their funding application and works. This is set out clearly in the prospectus and applications guidance for the Private Sector ACM Remediation Fund, the Building Safety Fund and the Waking Watch Relief Fund, available at: www.gov.uk/guidance/building-safety-programme.
