I am fairly new to LaTeX so please bear with me. I am trying to reduce the space between the footnote and the page numbering (see screenshots in the attachment). What command will do the trick?

Ensure that you have no \raggedbottom somewhere in your document. Then you can adjust footskip using geometry package.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{kantlipsum}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage[margin=1in,footskip=0.1in]{geometry}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0.4pt}
\begin{document}
  \kant[1-3]\footnote{some}
  \kant[1-24]
\end{document}

Adjust the footskip value as you desire.

A better setting may include

\usepackage[margin=1in,includehead,includefoot,headheight=0.5in,headsep=0.2in,footskip=0.2in,heightrounded]{geometry}

with suitable values.
