Update November 2021:


How bids will be assessed

*This fund is now closed to new bids*

The details on this page remain published for information only.

As the lead authority, East Sussex County Council will assess all bids submitted. Bids will be assessed against:

  • the gateway criteria set out in the UK Community Renewal Fund Prospectus – bids that fail to meet these criteria are ineligible for support and will be rejected
  • the extent to which they meet the objectives of UK Community Renewal Fund
  • the extent to which bids would support the delivery of local growth and employment support priorities.

Following assessment, East Sussex County Council will submit those eligible bids which most strongly meet the UK Community Renewal Fund and local priorities to the UK Government for consideration, up to a maximum of £3 million per place (i.e. up to £3 million per Borough or District area).

The UK Government will assess all bids submitted by lead authorities against the criteria set out in the UK Community Renewal Fund Prospectus.

The UK Government will announce the outcome of the assessment process from late July 2021 onwards.

East Sussex County Council will then enter into a funding agreement with successful bidders.
