This Government is committed to levelling up. The SR announced a £4 billion Levelling Up Fund that will invest in local infrastructure that has a visible impact on people and their communities.

To help local areas prepare for the introduction of the UKSPF, we will provide an additional £220 million in 20/21 for communities to pilot programmes and new approaches, with total domestic UK-wide funding being ramped up to at least match EU receipts, reaching around £1.5 billion a year

In the Hon Member's region, the West Yorkshire devolution deal will bring close to £3 billion public and private sector investment into the region, creating 26,000 jobs and adding £2.1 billion a year to the economy by 2031.
