Background Information: Homelessness prevention grants have been under delegated authority to the Head of Strategic Housing. The delegated authority requires renewal from 1.4.15. Other grants, formerly known as grants to housing agencies have gone to committee as and when grant renewals were required. These were also grants that assisted with homelessness prevention but not under delegated authority. This report brings the two together.
