Government grants data and statistics

This page contains data and reports on government grant spending by financial year.

The government puts transparency and accountability at the heart of how it does business, and publishing data is key to this.

The Cabinet Office is continuing to help departments, to ensure that grant making, across government, is more efficient and effective.

The government has developed a database, the Government Grants Information System (GGIS), to capture information about grant funding across the whole of government.

As part of the transparency agenda, the Government Grants Management Function (GGMF) collates and publishes the Government grants register to show how public funds are spent through the grants funding mechanism by all government departments and arm’s length bodies (ALBs). The Government grants register is the most comprehensive view of grant spending across government.

The Government grants register is released annually in March.
