ACHA launches tenant grant assistance fund
The board of management at Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA) has approved a £40,000 grant assistance fund for its tenants.
The purpose of this fund is to assist any tenant experiencing vulnerability in financial terms between January and March 2022.
ACHA’s welfare rights staff and other colleagues are actively supporting tenants through a variety of other initiatives at this present time. This additional initiative is designed to assist those who may not have qualified for other assistance, or have particularly challenging needs at the present time.
ACHA’s chief executive Alastair MacGregor commented: “We live in very challenging times with substantial increases in fuel, food, clothing and other costs. If you add to that the stop-start uncertainties of Covid-19 in economic terms; a substantial number of tenants have endured financial pressure.
“As a landlord and a charity ACHA’s board has taken this particular initiative to ensure this additional funding is available to help the most vulnerable. We hope it will allow a number of our tenants to improve their household income over the next few months.”
