Detail

The Department for Communities and Local Government is making available an additional £100 million for one year to support those local authorities in developing well-designed Council Tax support schemes and maintain positive incentives to work.

The grant will be payable in March 2013 to those authorities who adopt schemes that must comply with criteria set by the government to ensure that low-income households do not face an extensive increase in their Council Tax liability in 2013 to 2014.

This funding will enable councils to explore more sustainable approaches to managing the funding reduction that minimise the impact on vulnerable taxpayers.
