UK Shared Prosperity Fund
Community projects are being encouraged to access new funding avenues as two areas of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund are successfully allocated.
The UK Shared Prosperity Fund has now closed for Expressions of Interest to its main Supporting Local Business and Community and Place capital and revenue funding streams in Boston, after having awarded in excess of £1.8million to several projects across the district.
As part of the Government's Levelling Up agenda, the South and East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership has awarded its allocated budget to projects in this category across Boston, however interested parties now have the chance to apply to new funding streams.
Groups in search of cash for community projects are being urged to make use of the UKSPF/RPF funded Lincolnshire Community Foundation's GRASSroots Community Grants Programme, which provides grants to a maximum of £25,000 in support of parishes, village halls, community spaces and community projects.
Projects are encouraged to make contact and find out more through the LCF's Grants Page at www.lincolnshirecf.co.uk, where the application form can be found. Alternatively, more information can be found by contacting email@example.com or calling 01529 305825
If you are the owner of a Small & Medium Enterprise (SME) in search of funding, please visit Grants4Growth Home Page - Grants 4 Growth (sholland.gov.uk). The Grants4Growth programme has been funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund with £1.85million which aims to boost employment opportunities and bring wider benefits across South & East Lincolnshire.
Furthermore, a new People and Skills discretionary grant scheme will be launched in Boston later this year. The scheme will aim to support businesses to access the skills training they need and for our residents to access higher paid, higher skilled work in our area.
