The UK Community Renewal Fund (UKCRF) will be a competitive process with no pre-set eligibility. Any legally constituted organisation can receive funding from the UKCRF to deliver an approved project. This includes:
- local authorities
- public sector organisations
- higher and further education institutions
- private sector companies and registered charities (assuming they are delivering support to benefit others)
Bids cannot be submitted for projects that benefit a single entity (for example a single business); there must be evidence of wider impact for multiple individuals, businesses or other organisations. Given the intention to support projects of scale, consortium bids are welcomed. A lead organisation should be identified for consortia bids.
