Government funding covers all works directly related to the removal and replacement of unsafe cladding systems on residential buildings of 18 metres and above in height. Detailed information on works eligible for funding can be found in the Building Safety Fund prospectus, available at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/remediation-of-non-acm-buildings#prospectus---outlining-eligibility-for-the-fund . Eligible works can cover other structural and fire safety works but only where it integral to the remediation of the unsafe cladding system.
