Tenant Grant Fund monitoring report: January 2022

A report on the operation of the Tenant Grant Fund to 31 December 2021, and a report on overall spend to 31 January 2022.


Local authorities have provided Scottish Ministers with reports on the operation of the Tenant Grant Fund up to 31 December 2021 and then a further report on overall spend up to 31 January 2022.  The majority of local authorities needed time to set up systems to allocate the money – ensuring due diligence and to minimise fraud - and this is reflected in the spend returns.

As of 31 January 2022, Local Authorities have reported a total of 1354 payments (up from 536 in December) and have paid grants totalling £1,808,434.02 (an increase of £1,162,089.30 from December). Although eight local authorities recorded a nil return, they have all confirmed that applications are being actively considered and payments are pending.
