Pembrokeshire County Council’s second round inviting interested organisations to apply for funding from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) closes this Sunday.

UKSPF is available during the 2023/24 and 2024/25 financial years only – and for projects across the county.

Projects must deliver activity that is in line with the UK Shared Prosperity Fund Prospectus and align with one of these investment priorities:

  • Communities and Place
  • Supporting Local Business
  • People and Skills.

More information on each of these is contained in the Regional Investment Plan.

With at least £1.67m available, Pembrokeshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Finance, Councillor Alec Cormack, said: “We’re looking forward to receiving good quality applications that will be able to deliver a wide range of projects to benefit Pembrokeshire’s people, communities and businesses.”

Applicants must carefully check whether they should apply for SPF under this Invitation to Bid, or a separate grant scheme under one of the Anchor schemes which include Business, Community and Place-making grants.

There is more information available on the Council’s website.

Submitting an Application for Funding:

Applications must be submitted using the updated version of the Pembrokeshire UK Shared Prosperity Fund Application Form included in SPF information online. Bids submitted in any other format will not be accepted.

Applications must be submitted to Pembrokeshire County Council using this email address: [email protected].

This application round is now live and applications must be submitted by 11:59pm on Sunday, October 15, 2023.

This is an absolute deadline and applications received after this will not be accepted.

If you’re not sure how best to secure the UKSPF funding you need to deliver your project, a flowchart has been produced that will help you navigate the various routes through the programme.

This and all other information, including how applications will be assessed, is available on the Council’s website.
