To help local authorities prevent homelessness as a result of the changes to the housing benefit regime, the Welsh Government has made £2.15 million available to local authorities until March 2014.

This has been used to develop projects, to raise awareness of the reforms and provide support and advice to landlords and tenants.

A monitoring system was set up for local authorities to send data to the Welsh Government at six-monthly intervals throughout the grant period, to monitor the use of the grant and its impact.
