Local Growth Fund Projects

Local Growth Funds provide capital funding from the Government's Local Growth Fund to local economies via Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs). LEPs then invest in local projects which help overcome strategic barriers to growth - from road improvements and incubator space, through to new skills facilities and space for innovation.


The Recycled Local Growth Fund (LGF) call for projects is now live, this is an opportunity for projects to apply for capital funding as leverage (match funding) to support applications to Levelling Up Funding (LUF) and UK Shared Prosperity Funds (UKSPF) OR projects that will deliver High Value for Money linked to the Business Board & Combined Authority strategies, for example Employment & Skills Strategy or sector strategies .
