Social care (capital) grant determination for 2015 to 2016

The Department of Health have published details of the £133,641 million social care grant allocations for local authorities in England in 2015 to 2016. They also explain any conditions on how the money is used, in particular, that the grant paid to a local authority under this determination is required to be transferred into the local Better Care Fund (BCF) pooled budget, under section 75 of the NHS Act 2006, and spent in accordance with a NHS England approved BCF spending plan jointly agreed between the local authority and the relevant Clinical Commissioning Group(s). In some areas, the grant could therefore support investment in specialised housing that meet local health and social care objectives.
