The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport is managing 53 of the 70 grants awarded from the 2017/18 Tampon Tax Fund. Grant agreements have been finalised for 38 of those grants.

The remaining grants are managed by the devolved administrations.

Grant agreements are finalised and signed when the department and the recipient both agree to the terms and conditions so the end date for that process is not entirely within government's control.
