What type of bids are we looking for?

*This fund is now closed to new bids*

The details on this page remain published for information only.

Projects must deliver activity that is in line with the UK Community Renewal Fund Prospectus and aligned with at least one of these investment priorities:

  • investment in skills
  • investment for local business
  • investment in communities and place
  • supporting people into employment.

There are no specific financial allocations to these priorities, so applicants may choose to align with any, or a combination of them.

The UK Government anticipates supporting a range of projects by theme and size. There is no minimum threshold to the value of bids, but applicants are strongly encouraged to maximise impact and deliverability through larger projects submitted in East Sussex (£250,000 and above) where possible.

As 90% of funding available through the UK Community Renewal Fund is revenue funding and only available in 2021 to 2022, projects should be predominantly, or exclusively revenue based. Projects that focus predominantly on the construction or major refurbishment of buildings, the purchase of land or the purchase of large pieces of equipment will not be supported.
