OPE Phase 4 - £500,000 Available for Partnerships

We are really pleased to see that the OPE Phase 4 prospectus is out! Existing and new local authority led partnerships can bid for funding of up to £500,000 to support local programmes that promote a collaborative approach to delivering new homes and jobs, integrated services, capital receipts and running cost reductions over a 5 year period. Joint working between central and local government (and other partners) remains key - as does "ambition" and the "credibility" of the proposals. First deadline is 6 May 2016 - so it’s time to put pen to paper!

Are you interested in forming a partnership with neighbouring local authorities?

Is there a clear driver for collaboration?
