The Adult Social Care Infection Control Fund is worth £600 million. The primary purpose of this fund is to support adult social care providers, including those with whom the local authority does not have a contract, to reduce the rate of COVID-19 transmission in and between care homes, and support wider workforce resilience.
The funding will be paid in 2 tranches. The first has been paid to local authorities on 22 May 2020. The second tranche will be paid in early July.
We expect the grant will be fully spent by local authorities on infection control measures within 2 months of the authority receiving the second instalment. However, we will keep this under review.
