Tenant Grant Fund
The Scottish Government has given funding to Scottish Local Authorities to support the work they are doing to prevent homelessness by creating a grants fund.
Update - The application process is now closed and we are not accepting any more new applications.
This fund was administered in line with the Scottish Government guidelines with the overall aim of supporting homelessness prevention.
To have been eligible for a grant, a tenant must have had rent arrears arising as a direct result of the Covid-19 pandemic during the period between 23 March 2020 and 9 August 2021.
The fund provided a grant to help tenants to come to an agreement with their landlords for repaying rent arrears and to remain in their home. Grant awards were paid directly to landlords to credit a tenant's rent account.
