5. Grant Schemes

What grant schemes are available under the UK Shared Prosperity Fund?

Funding from the Net Zero Innovation, Sustainable Tourism and Cultural programmes - along with funding received from the Rural England Prosperity Fund (REPF) - has been allocated to the following four grant schemes:

Culture, Leisure and Tourism Fund - Grants for community organisations with a culture and leisure focus to purchase equipment to decarbonise their premises. Grants for a limited number of tourism businesses to decarbonise or improve their accessibility. This fund was run in 2023/24 using both UKSPF and REPF funding. This funding will be available in 2024/25 under the Carbon Action Fund. 

Innovation and Resilience Fund (Round 2 and 3) - Grants for rural businesses, farms and businesses with a net zero focus to purchase equipment which will enable job creation or improved productivity. This fund combines both UKSPF and REPF funding for 2023/24. It will be solely REPF-funded in 2024/25, with UKSPF funding channelled into the Carbon Action Fund. 

Creative East Devon Fund - Grants for community organisations to support small-scale cultural and arts projects in East Devon. This scheme will be funded through the Cultural Programme for 2023/24. 

Carbon Action Fund - Grants for both businesses and rural community organisations to purchase decarbonisation equipment to cut costs and reduce their carbon footprint. To be eligible, organisations must have a carbon action plan, which can be sourced freely through our Carbon Action Programme.
