Local authorities will be allowed to bid for a share of £8m to help vulnerable people apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.
The funding will enable councils to provide legal support, caseworker services or advice to those that are hardest to reach.
Minister for future borders and immigration, Kevin Foster, said: ‘Supporting vulnerable EU citizens and their families is at the forefront of our approach to the EU Settlement Scheme.
’This new funding means no stone will be left unturned in ensuring everyone gets the help they need.’
The 57 charities already working with the Home Office will have their funding extended until the end of June 2020.
