Mansfield Community Grant Fund

Mansfield Community Grant Fund

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) is a central pillar of the UK government’s Levelling Up agenda and a significant component of its support for places across the UK.  It provides up to three years funding for local investment, with all areas of the UK receiving an allocation between 2022/23 and 2024/25.  All funds must be spent by March 2025.


In August 2022, Mansfield District Council submitted a UKSPF Investment Plan setting out the area’s priorities for spending the city’s allocation of £2.955m.  The Investment Plan covers the three priorities of:

  • Communities and Place
  • Supporting Local Business
  • People and Skills

The Council has now secured approval for its Investment Plan which enables funding to be progressed towards the Communities and Place priority, and some of this funding is to be available through the Mansfield Community Grant Fund.

Person guiding another person

Mansfield District Council recognises the important and valuable contribution that Mansfield Voluntary and Community Sector (MVCS) has made to the lives of residents across the district and the Community Grant Fund aims to build on this to deliver the aims and objective of the Investment Plan.

Through the Fund, the Council wants to make it easier for community and voluntary groups to access smaller amounts of funding for projects that will make a difference in their local neighbourhoods.   The Mansfield Community Grant Fund will therefore support community-based activity with grants of up to £15,000 for community groups across the district of Mansfield.
