To support the development of high-quality bids to the Levelling Up Fund, a one-off payment of £125k in capacity funding was allocated to all category 1 local authorities in England, and all local authorities in Scotland and Wales.

Payment of this capacity funding was made to all the eligible local authorities. In total, 158 payments were made in Round 1 of the Fund and a further 15 for Round 2. No local authority rejected this payment.
