The Levelling Up Fund will invest in local infrastructure that has a visible impact on people and their communities and will support economic recovery.

The Fund will be jointly managed by the Treasury, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, and the Department for Transport. It will invest in a broad range of high value local projects, including bypasses and other local road schemes, bus lanes, rail station upgrades, regenerating eyesores, upgrading town centres and community infrastructure, and local arts and culture.

We will publish a prospectus for the Fund soon.
