The report states the aggregate amount of grants for police purposes to be made under section 46 of the Police Act 1996 is £8,007,358,984 (comprising £4,583,344,820 in Home Office Police Core Settlement, £500,466,424 in Legacy Council Tax Grants and £2,923,547,740 in DCLG Formula Funding)
The total policing grant for 2013/14 was £7,792,585,520 (comprising £4,725,433,501 in Home Office Police Core Settlement and £3,067,152,019 in DCLG Formula Funding).

The policing grant is one of the ways policing in England and Wales is funded; funds also come via council tax as well as other sources. The 2014/15 settlement was the first under new arrangements. The Legacy Council Tax Grants refer to the Council Tax Freeze Grant from the 2011/12 and 2013/14 schemes, payable to local policing bodies (formerly police authorities) in England who chose to freeze or lower precept in those years and the Local Council Tax Support Grant paid following the abolition of council tax benefit and the localisation of council tax support for those unable to afford their council tax.
