26 MAY - ONLINE
You are invited to this important event for VCSE sector organisations in the Tees Valley to contribute perspectives to inform the Tees Valley Combined Authority investment plan for the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF). MVDA is organising this consultation with VONNE and others as part of the Tees Valley Infrastructure Partnership.
Tees Valley Mayoral Combined Authority is a lead authority for the UKSPF and the allocation for the region is £42,725,676 core funding over three years, with an additional £3,631,629 for the Multiply adult numeracy programme.
Join us online on 26th May to consider the contribution of the VCSE sector to the themes of the UKSPF and how the vital role the sector plays in supporting people and communities in the Tees Valley can inform the Tees Valley Combined Authority investment plan.
The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) announced communities across the United Kingdom will benefit from £2.6 billion of UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) being allocated to help spread opportunity and level up the country. The Fund was launched with the publication of its full prospectus on 13 April 2022.
For more background reading see VONNE's perspective on the fund, read this advice on the next steps for VCSE organisations by VONNE in preparing for this fund, and read this blog post by John Atkinson at MVDA with more detail on priorities and allocations of funding in our area.
