Community Renewal Fund

The UK government is providing an additional £220 million funding through the UK Community Renewal Fund to help local areas prepare for the launch of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund in 2022. This Fund aims to support people and communities most in need across the UK to pilot programmes and new approaches and will invest in skills, community and place, local business, and supporting people into employment.

Sheffield City Region Mayoral Combined Authority (MCA) was designated as a lead authority by the UK Government.

Working with the four local councils of Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham, and Sheffield, we sought proposals from across the region for submission to the Government in June.
