Levelling up: organisations invited to apply for share of £5.5m to kickstart projects

North Lincolnshire organisations are being invited to apply for a share of Government cash to kickstart projects.

Last month the leader of North Lincolnshire Council welcomed the announcement of additional levelling up cash to enable even more people to complete high-quality skills training and access well-paid, sustainable jobs.

The cash is part of the Government’s £2.6bn UK Shared Prosperity Fund, designed to increase community pride by supporting businesses and helping people achieve better outcomes, access opportunities and lead better lives.

Now, local organisations are being invited to find out more about the fund by joining an online webinar taking place on Thursday 9 June 2022 between 9am and 10am.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader, North Lincolnshire Council, said:

“This is further evidence of levelling up here in North Lincolnshire.

“Already, the Government has committed £30m of investment to transform Scunthorpe. A range of projects, including the construction of the enterprise and innovation hub and advanced manufacturing park, as well as the delivery of gigabit broadband and green energy schemes will help to stimulate growth, create jobs and build a different future for residents.

“This new cash injection will go even further and gives local organisations a fantastic opportunity to directly shape North Lincolnshire’s exciting future.”

Examples of projects eligible for funding include further enhancing:

  • town centres and high streets
  • arts, cultural, heritage and creative activities
  • local sports facilities, leagues and tournaments
  • community measures to reduce cost of living

Please register for the webinar via Eventbrite. To apply for funding, please complete the online proforma by 10am on Friday 17 June 2022.
