star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to reducing homelessness and rough sleeping. No one should ever have to sleep rough. That is why we have recently published our Rough Sleeping Strategy, which sets out the first steps towards achieving our aim to halve rough sleeping by 2022 and end it altogether by 2027, backed by £100 million of funding over the next two years.</p><p>We are also committed to working with all local authorities as we move towards a country where no one should sleep rough.</p><p>Crawley is receiving £470,000 along with Eastbourne, Lewes, Wealden, Rother, Arun, Adur, Worthing, Chichester, Horsham and Hastings as part of our Rough Sleeping Grant to expand their existing rough sleeper pathway until Spring 2019.</p><p>Crawley will, along with other local authorities, shortly be contacted by the Rough Sleeping Initiative team to explore what additional support and assistance can be provided to help people escape rough sleeping for good in their areas.</p><p>Over the spending period up to 2020 councils will be able to access more than £200 billion to spend on local services; of this, West Sussex County Council will have available over £2.6 billion. The majority of this funding is non-ringfenced as it is for local authorities, who are independent of central government, to make decisions on spending and manage their budgets in line with locally determined priorities.</p><p> </p>
