The UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) is a central pillar of the UK Government’s Levelling Up agenda and will provide £2.6 billion of funding for local investment across the UK by March 2025.

The overarching objective of the fund is: “Building pride in place and increasing life chances”.

To support this objective we have developed Key Funds (grant schemes) which organisations and businesses can apply to:

Check the guidance carefully to make sure your organisation or business is applying for the right key fund.  

If you submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the wrong key fund you will need to reapply to the correct scheme, as applications will not be transferrable between funds.

Applications will be assessed on a first come first served basis and considered in terms of eligibility, value for money in terms of outputs / outcomes to be achieved and in accordance with the scheme’s aims and objectives.
