Community Ownership Fund

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has published the prospectus for its £150 million Community Ownership Fund to enable community groups to bid for up to £250,000 matched funding to help them buy or takeover local community assets. There will be 8 bidding rounds over the next four years, beginning on 30 July. Local authorities, including local (parish and town) councils, will not be able to bid but can play a role in working with eligible community groups. MHCLG is also hosting two information webinars on 20 July WEBINAR LINK and 23 July WEBINAR LINK for those who might be interested. View the prospectus here: PROSPECTUS LINK
