Catch up on our webinar 'Bidding for Round 2 Levelling Up Funding'

Catch up on our webinar on preparing your bids for Round 2 of the Levelling Up Fund, held on Wednesday 6th April 11-12.


Watch here

The second round of bidding to the Levelling Up Fund is now open with bids needing to be developed and submitted by 6th July. This may seem like a lot of time, but it’s not!


The fund is largely focused on local projects that require up to £20m of government investment. The three focus areas are: Transport, Regeneration and town centre investment, and Cultural investment


The bid template is essentially a version of the Government’s business case template, the Treasury’s “five case model”, which requires consultation with stakeholders, strategic thought, economic analysis, and implementation planning.


This all takes time (don’t forget Easter and elections) so if you didn’t apply for Round 1 or if you are able to submit multiple bids (based on the number of MPs on your patch) then now is the time to start planning.


In this free webinar Andrew Laird, Managing Director at Mutual Ventures, sets out the application process and shares lessons learned from Round 1. He is joined by Sally Grindrod-Smith from West Lindsey District Council who shares her experience of successfully bidding for funding.
