March 2021 - Former Independent Living Fund recipient grant to be paid
The government has confirmed that it will continue to pay the former Independent Living Fund (ILF) recipient grant to local authorities in England in 2021/2022.
But the total value of the grant remains frozen at 2019/2020 level of £160.6 million.
Following the closure of the ILF in June 2015, the government originally agreed to continue funding pre-existing ILF arrangements until the end of 2019/2020 but this has now been extended to cover 2020/2021.
The government has also set out allocation rates for individual local authorities in England, ranging from less than £8,000 (City of London) to more than £5 million (Lancashire and Essex).
