The UK Shared Prosperity Fund provides £2.6 billion of new funding for local investment by March 2025, with all areas of the UK receiving an allocation from the Fund via a funding formula, rather than a competition.

This fund will target communities, people and skills, and local businesses - maintaining commitments to match EU funds in Scotland.
