£212 million UKSPF benefit for Scotland's communities
Communities across Scotland will benefit from £212 million of investment in skills, improved high streets, support for local business and more green spaces as the UK Government has approved local spending plans for UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF).
UKSPF matches and succeeds EU funding in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Councils across Scotland have drawn up plans over the summer which include supporting local arts projects, improved sports facilities, export grants for Scottish companies and helping people with core skills such as maths.
