How To Apply for LIFT Jobs, Skills and Trials Funding

Applying for LIFT Jobs, Skills and Trials funding

LIFT is delivered by the Economic Development team at Norfolk County Council. A full time LIFT Project Facilitator is available to discuss project ideas and offer support you through the 2 stage application process.

Remember that the funding only covers the 50% of the project costs. All applications will need to have secured 50% of match funding or funding in kind before starting the project activities.

 

Step 1

Contact the LIFT team

If you wish to apply to us for funding, there is hands-on facilitator support available to help you through the application process.

  • Check priorities of LIFT and eligibility rules. Also have a look at the Applicant Handbook.
  • Contact Us! Talk through the details of your project idea with the LIFT Facilitator. The Facilitator will also be able to advise you on which strands to apply for.
  • We can answer any specific questions you may have and guide you through the application process, including finding partners (if necessary) and dealing with match funding and decision making dates.

The final decision on LIFT Jobs, Trials, Skills and Small Skills grant applications will be made by representatives from the Norfolk and North Suffolk Local Action Groups: Wensum and Coast, Waveney Valley, West Norfolk, the Brecks and the Broads who make up the LIFT Programmes Board. The area each Local Action Group covers is shown on this map.
