CIF 2015 to 2016

Education Funding Agency (EFA) has published the first part of the 2015 to 2016 CIFinformation for applicants (PDF, 162KB, 4 pages) , setting out the eligibility criteria and the key features of the fund. Detailed information to help applicants develop their proposals will be published on this page shortly.

Most CIF funding will be awarded to projects that address building condition issues including refurbishing or renewing roofs, windows or toilet areas and/or compliance issues such as fire protection systems, electrical upgrades or asbestos removal.

A small proportion of the fund will be for projects supporting schools and colleges that need to expand their existing facilities and floor space to accommodate more pupils within their existing age range or address overcrowding or a lack of specialist facilities.
