Projects invited to bid for funding to help boost Nottinghamshire’s economy

The deadline for Nottinghamshire organisations to apply for a share of Government Funding has been extended until Friday 14 May.

Nottinghamshire is set to have a share of the Government’s £220 million UK Community Renewal Fund which aims to help local communities most in need, by improving skills, breaking down the barriers to employment and supporting local businesses.

Organisations from across the county now have until Friday (14 May) to finalise their applications for funding to provide projects to boost the economy, including helping Nottinghamshire residents affected by the pandemic back into work.

Applications are welcomed from all districts in Nottinghamshire, however the Government has identified Newark and Sherwood, Mansfield and Bassetlaw as three of the 100 priority areas for the new fund, based on an index of economic measures around productivity, household income, unemployment, skills and population density.

Ideal project applications should improve the quality of life for Nottinghamshire residents and businesses by boosting skills, getting people back into work and helping local small and medium-sized enterprises to thrive.

The bid criteria include:

  • Helping those who have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic to be supported back into work
  • Supporting small businesses and encouraging new businesses
  • Supporting market towns by improving footfall.
  • Encouraging more visitors to Nottinghamshire to help support the local tourism and hospitality trade
  • Helping businesses improve their low carbon credentials
  • Supporting manufacturers to digitally upskill the workforce to meet the increasing challenges of advances in technology

The Government will announce which projects have been successful in late July and all projects must be complete, with all funds spent, by 31 March 2022.

For more information and details of how to apply, visit the Nottinghamshire County Council website.
