UKCRF - How bids will be assessed
As the lead authority, we will assess all bids submitted.
Bids will be assessed against:
- the gateway criteria set out in the UK Community Renewal Fund Prospectus - bids that fail to meet these criteria are ineligible support and will be rejected
- the extent to which they meet the objectives of UK Community Renewal Fund
- the extent to which bids would support the delivery of local growth and employment support priorities
Following assessment, we will submit those eligible bids which most strongly meet the UK Community Renewal Fund and local priorities to the UK Government for consideration, up to a maximum of £3m per place (the maximum total available for Powys).
The UK Government will assess all bids submitted by lead authorities against the criteria set out in the UK Community Renewal Fund Prospectus.
The UK Government will announce the outcome of the assessment process from late July 2021 onwards.
We will enter into a funding agreement with successful bidders.
In selecting the bids that will be forwarded to the UK Government for consideration, we will prioritise bids that have the greatest potential to deliver against key local priorities to help ensure that Powys' economy can recover as quickly as possible from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
