ADMIN GRANT

Tenant Led Groups

 

During the current year Administration Grant will be paid to all tenant group's based on £3.60 per tenanted property.

Any group with more then one years grant fund in their bank account with no     expenditure of this sum planned will not be eligible to claim Administration Grant until their account balance falls below this figure.

Any tenant group with less then one years grant funding in their bank account, or they have reserved the money for specific expenditure will be able to claim a second administration in quarter 4 subject to sufficient funds being available.

Every eligible group would receive the minimum and more active group's with less then one years grant funding in their bank account, would receive the maximum.

This would result in the following:

 

 

 

Groups will be notified of outcomes and BAC payments (if agreed) made within 10 working days.

 

Reports will be presented quarterly to the Management Committee and added to the finance monitoring information provided to the Management Committee.
