Due to the ongoing public health emergency the County Council has received a number of support packages from Central Government. As funds are received the Council needs to determine arrangements to distribute, allocate or make other preparations for the appropriate use of funds received.
The relevant decision maker will be determined by the intended use of the allocated funds. The Council may be required to comply with a number of conditions set out in the terms of the grant which may mean decisions need to be taken quickly due to the need to provide timely financial support related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Members will be consulted or advised of planned decisions with as much notice as can be provided.
The Director of Education and Skills has approved:-
(1)The award of Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme summer grants to the organisations identified in Appendix A of the report up to a total value of £424,209.
(2)The allocation of further HAF funds to the anticipated value of £300,000 to organisations delivering services that meet the criteria of the grant set out in paragraph 1.7 to broaden the HAF summer offer and supplement any gaps identified at a local level, as set out in paragraph 2.6.
(3)The allocation of remaining HAF funds, currently estimated at £928,351 after completion of the summer programme, to enable the delivery of the Christmas programme and to cover the cost of the County Council administering the programme.
