The Community Infrastructure Fund (CIF) is a pool which we have collected from a levy on developers of new homes and other properties for improving local facilities and services. In recent years, the fund has been growing and we’re looking at innovative ways the money could be used.
The fund is available to help address shortfalls in delivering infrastructure improvements and priority will be given to projects where the Community Infrastructure Fund levers in additional funding from other sources.
We are inviting applications for a minimum of £5,000 worth of funding for capital projects that can be delivered straight away.
Guidance on how we allocate the funding has been produced.
The 2018 allocations has now closed, further information will be published later in 2019
