The Government has recently issued a Technical Note and series of Frequently Asked Questions to follow up on the previously published prospectus setting out their approach for the first round of the Levelling Up Fund (LUF). This Technical Note provides further information on eligibility, MP support and the application and assessment process for the first round of the Levelling Up Fund.
Key considerations emerging from the latest technical note for local authorities to consider when submitting a bid fall into three main categories:
|Strategic Fit||Value for Money||Deliverability|
The Government will be publishing further guidance in coming weeks. Capacity funding of £125,000 will be provided to eligible local authorities: the 93 local authorities in England that fall into Category 1, and all local authorities in Scotland and Wales.
