Local Covid Support Scheme (LCSS)

21/07/2021 - Local Covid Support Scheme (LCSS)



                      i.         Noted the top slice of £100k from the new LCGS grant for free school meal vouchers during the remaining two weeks of the school summer holidays (as outlined in paragraph 10 of the report);

                     ii.         Approved the methodology outlined in paragraph 16 of the report for allocating the remaining grant to families identified as in need using the Council Tax Support  (CTS) scheme entitlement criteria;

                    iii.        Approved the continuation of the existing scheme for anyone not on CTS but requires help with food and bills (paragraph 18 of the report).

Reason:     To ensure government funding is utilised in the fairest and most direct way to support as many families as possible affected by the financial impacts of the Covid19 Pandemic.
