The UK Community Renewal Fund (UKCRF) was launched by the UK government on 3 March 2021 as part of Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s budget. It was presented in a Ministry for Housing Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) press release as forming part of a wider package of fiscal measures the Government is taking to “support our economic recovery from the pandemic, level up communities, and help vulnerable people”. The Community Renewal Fund has an allocation of £220m and will run between 2021-22. This Briefing Paper seeks to examine this new funding stream and its potential for cross-border initiatives.
