£15 Million Awarded to Ease Pressure on Local Services Linked to Migration (England)

The Government has announced that 27 Councils have been awarded grants totalling £15million from the Controlling Migration Fund.

The Controlling Migration Fund is a £100 million fund to help local areas facing pressures linked to recent immigration. The largest single grant was £2.43m to Nottingham City Council for its Nottingham Together programme, which includes tackling rogue landlords, increasing English language support, and reducing crimes such as modern slavery. The Fund will be available over the 4 years from 2016-17 to 2019-20. There is no set limit for which an authority can bid. Proposals will need to make the case for the amount of funding requested, and will be assessed on whether they deliver value for money amongst other considerations. Bids should be proportionate to the overall size of the Fund.

Applications can be submitted at any time.
