Bidding opens again for £4.8 billion levelling up fund

This is a great opportunity for Bracknell Forest Council and Wokingham Borough Council.

All over the country councils can today bid for a share of £4.8 billion of flagship levelling up funding for projects that improve everyday life for people across the UK.

Applications for the second round of the government’s Levelling Up Fund opened for submission today (15 July 2022) and will remain open until midday on 2 August 2022.

The fund empowers communities by putting money directly into the hands of councils, to invest in projects which give people pride in the places where they live.

Previous grants from the first round have gone towards improving town centres, boosting local transport links and supporting cultural and historical assets.

Greg Clark, the newly appointed Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities said:

“I am determined to press full steam ahead with levelling up communities across the United Kingdom.

“The Levelling Up Fund can provide the investment needed to make a project that communities have been dreaming of for years a reality.

“So I’m delighted to open applications for the second round of the Levelling Up Fund and I’m looking forward to seeing proposals that will make a positive impact on people’s lives.”
