The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) will support projects to develop local solutions in specific neighbourhoods, or across a greater area, or even across a local authority or service delivery boundaries. We are seeking projects that bring together the community and local authorities to design and implement services in partnership and so are looking for joint bids.
DCLG will provide support to partnerships of local authorities and community led groups in 2016 to 2017 and 2017 to 2018 to deliver improved services at lower cost through locally tailored services. This will be delivered through £2 million funding in 2016 to 2017 with a further £500,000 in 2017 to 2018.
The prospectus contains details of the programme, application process and assessment criteria.
