The UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF or the Fund) is a central pillar of the UK government’s ambitious Levelling Up agenda and a significant component of its support for places across the UK.

North Lincolnshire has been allocated funds through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) as part of the Levelling Up agenda. The fund will target where there is a need to create and build pride in place, support the business sector, and increase life chances through personal development and training to access employment. The fund will invest in three investment priorities: communities and place, support for local businesses, and people and skills.

This initial call is for projects under the Community and Place interventions for the current financial year (2022/23). Due to the short timescale to deliver projects prior to the end of the financial year (31st March 2022) projects are expected to be developed and ready for implementation or need little or no lead-in time. Funding is low level in the first year. There is no guarantee of continued funding into year 2 at this stage.
