Bringing about real change for London

Round 3 of the Good Growth Fund will open for applications on 2 September 2019 with over £20 million funding available. 

To get a well-balanced programme, we’re encouraging collaborative proposals that bring together a range of partners to focus resources and seize opportunities in a local area. 

Who can apply?

The Good Growth Fund is open to a broad range of public, private and third-sector organisations in London who want to drive regeneration in their local area. These include:

  • London boroughs
  • sub-regional partnerships 
  • town teams and business improvement districts
  • workspace providers
  • community groups
  • social enterprises
  • small and medium-sized enterprises
  • charities

What will we be funding?

We want to fund a range of projects and hope applicants respond creatively to our suggestions. This list is not exhaustive, and projects may deliver on one or more of the following actions:

  1. Develop civic infrastructure
  2. Back small business
  3. Secure and create workspace
  4. Craft a smarter city
  5. Intensify London’s local economies
  6. Build skills and employability
  7. Deliver community-led regeneration
  8. Enhance public space
  9. Share culture

Find out more

We will be running three area-based engagement workshops for potential bidders. The sessions are a great opportunity to hear from successful Round 1 and 2 projects, what makes a good application and the type of projects we are looking to support.

If you wish to attend please click on your local workshop and register your details:

To achieve a broad and well-balanced regeneration programme for London, we are strongly encouraging potential bidders who haven’t yet attended a Good Growth Fund workshop or haven’t previously engaged with Officers in our Regeneration Area Teams to attend one of the upcoming workshops.
