To establish the NEDDC Local Authority
Discretionary Grants Fund as directed by Government, as a response
The local scheme directly reflects the priorities identified in the BEIS guidance published on 13 May 2020, with the expectation that the Fund is launched and payments made from early June 2020.
The Scheme will be administered by the Partnership Strategy Team, in collaboration with
Section 47 of the Local Government and Finance
Act 1988 provides local authorities to use their discretionary
powers to provide grant relief.
A local scheme is therefore required to do so.
None. This approach has to be approved to be
able to apply the Government’s guidance for the Local
Authority Discretionary Grants Fund.
