Discretionary Assistance Fund (DAF)

The Discretionary Assistance Fund (DAF) offers two types of grant. Individual Assistance Payments (IAPs) help people live independently in their home or a property that they are moving into. Emergency Assistance Payments (EAPs) help pay for essential costs, such as food, gas, electricity, clothing or emergency travel. This folder contains data on the weekly number and value of IAPs and EAPs from March 2020, the latter of which was previously published in the statistical release COVID-19 in Wales: interactive dashboard.
