COVID Winter Grant Scheme

COVID Winter Grant Scheme


This is a new government initiative, paid through the council, specifically to support households suffering financial hardship as a direct result of the impact of COVID-19.


The government has awarded money to Hillingdon Council, as part of the COVID Winter Grant Scheme, to provide support to vulnerable households and families with children particularly affected by the pandemic during the winter period. 


The funding will be used to help those struggling to primarily meet the cost of food and utility bills. As school holidays can be a particularly challenging time for families, anyone with children eligible for benefits-related free school meals will receive a COVID-19 winter payment. 


Please note: This scheme will run until no later than Wednesday 31 March 2021

Once funds have been exhausted, no further payments will be made.
