The fund is there to help households most in need, including families, pensioners, unpaid carers, care leavers and disabled people, says the council.
"Price increases across the board are leaving them with less money to pay for essential items and costs.
“This funding has allowed us to help residents directly, as well as through local community organisations who need a boost to continue their invaluable work."
The Household Support Fund was originally created in October 2021 as a response to the cost of living crisis.
Now six months into the scheme, Wakefield has received over £6m in funding, with hundreds of residents and local communities across the district benefitting.
The funding can provide supermarket vouchers; help with essentials such as food, energy and white goods; advice and support with energy debt; money for food banks and assistance to homeless people and unpaid carers.
