Decisions:

The Director of Economic Development and Planning submitted a report asking committee to consider the allocation of the Household Support Fund which had been extended to 30 September 2022 with a further allocation of £120,000 passported to RVBC from LCC.

 

To provide consistency across districts a fixed amount of £90 would be paid to pensioners in receipt of Council Tax Support as requested by LCC. The remaining allocation would be used to adopt other priorities identified by LCC.

 

She reminded members that administering these grants on behalf of LCC was very time and resource intensive.

 

RESOLVED THAT COMMITTEE:

 

Approve the distribution of the new Housing Support Fund as follows

 

a)    A payment of £90 offered to pensioners in receipt of Council Tax Support as of 1 April 2022 following the revised position from LCC, and

 

b)    £857 be passported to the Ribble Valley Food Bank as match funding to money raised by Stones Young Estate Agents.
