The DLUHC announced that vulnerable renters struggling due to the impact of the pandemic would be helped by a £65 million support package. The funding will be given to councils in England and will be available through the winter months for households at risk of eviction or homelessness who should contact their local council if they require support. The funding is an increase to the £310 million Homeless Prevention Grant provided to councils by government.
