Benefits and support Household Support Fund

This scheme is now closed.

The Government provided funding for a Household Support Fund to help vulnerable people and families with essentials over the winter period. 

We used this to send cheques for £100 for families with dependent children under 19, or £70 for singles and couples with no children, to all households in Manchester City Council boundaries that receive Council Tax Support.

The cheques were sent on two batches, in December 2021 and February 2022. 

The deadline for cashing the cheques was 14 March 2022.

New Household Support Fund Scheme

The Government announced in the Spring statement that they will be extending the Household Support Fund for 22/23.

The Government guidance requires that we use the new Fund to support households with children, people of pension age and households of working age. We are currently working through the details of the new scheme and how it will be administered.

This page will be updated when the details of the new scheme have been finalised.

The Household Support Fund is different to the Council Tax Rebate £150 energy payment. Find out more about the Council Tax rebate
