The Building Safety Prospectus, published in May, clearly sets out the timelines for the Building Safety Fund process and details the criteria that needs to be met in order to receive funding. MHCLG has since publicly committed to keeping these timeframes under review.
We are currently reviewing registrations and supplementary information that has been requested from building owners. We will be in contact with building owners as soon as we have completed the verification process. At this point, eligible registrants will be asked to apply for funding. We are working to do this as quickly as possible.
