Information on expenditure by local authorities on housing improvement, Disabled Facilities Grants and renewal areas for April 2020 to March 2021.
The period covered by this release (April 2020 to March 2021) was during the first year of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic which saw the introduction of public health measures, including some periods of lockdown. Disruption to local authority services during this period may have impacted the figures. This should be kept in mind, particularly when comparing with previous years’ data.
- During 2020-21 the overall expenditure on assistance for housing improvement (including Disabled Facilities Grants (DFGs)) was £34.5 million. The majority of local authorities reported a decrease in overall expenditure. It is possible this is due to the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
- During 2020-21, 2,511 Mandatory Disabled Facilities Grants, with a total value of £20.2 million, were completed by local authorities in Wales. Compared to 2018-19, this represented a decrease of 37% in the overall value of Mandatory DFGs.
