The UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) will support people to contribute and benefit from economic growth.

Taking its lead from the Industrial Strategy, the Fund will tackle inequalities between communities by investing in the foundations of productivity.

We intend to consult on the UKSPF this year, as we committed to do in our Industrial Strategy.
