With the remaining Covid restrictions being extended to the 19th July the Government has announced a final addition to the funding of the Local Support Grant. The grant is intended to support families across the country who are struggling with the cost of food and utility bills as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Central Bedfordshire Council will receive an allocation of £552,521 set to end on the 30th September. This brings Central Bedfordshire Council’s total allocation up to £2,034,314.
South West Bedfordshire MP, Andrew Selous said,
‘In these difficult times it is important for the families of South West Bedfordshire to have the security of a roof over their heads and food on their table. I welcome this support greatly.’
