Future High Streets Fund: overview

The Future High Streets Fund will support and fund local areas’ plans to make their high streets and town centres fit for the future.



A new £675 million Future High Streets Fund will be set up to help local areas to respond to and adapt to changes.

It will support local areas to prepare long-term strategies for their high streets and town centres, including funding a new High Streets Taskforce to provide expertise and hands-on support to local areas and it will also then co-fund with local areas projects.

In December 2018 we published the full prospectus for the Fund, detailing the objectives of the Fund, further detail on the nature of projects that are eligible for funding, and assessment criteria.
