Applications to the Levelling Up Fund are subject to the robust assessment process set out in published guidance. This includes reviewing the alignment of each bid with the Levelling Up Fund objectives and local plans for levelling up. We also assess the value for money and deliverability of every bid.
Additionally, all successful Levelling Up Fund bids are subject to rigorous monitoring and evaluation requirements to review the impact of projects in local communities. Details of the approach are set out in our published monitoring and evaluation strategy.
