Decision status: Recommendations Approved
The Committee noted that there had been an increase in the capital allocation awarded to district councils from central government for Disabled Facilities Grants (DFGs) resulting in a number of discretionary grant schemes being introduced, as well as the continuation of mandatory DFGs.
Due to the complex nature and the lengthening time for grants to be processed and the waiting time for potential grant applicants, additional resources were required within the team that deal with these applications.
1. The permanent appointment of the temporary Grants Case Worker (0.6 FTE) be approved.
2. The appointment of a second Grants Officer be approved.
