£302,669 for services that prevent people rough sleeping or
assist people to move off the streets using the exceptional
approval process. Due to time constraints it has not been possible
to gain formal approval as there was a three week window to put
forward a proposal to use the funding.
Approval has been sought to submit the bid and has been confirmed from Executive Director, the deputy S151 Officer and the Deputy Mayor - Cabinet Member for Finance, following approval from the Cabinet Member for Housing Delivery and Homes and the Director of Homes and Landlord Services. There is no need to take this decision to cabinet as the funding is below £500,000.
Option 1 - To not bid for the funding.

sleeping in Bristol.
