What is CIF Funding?

CIF is an annual bidding round offered by the ESFA a government agency sponsored by the Department for Education (DfE), for academies and sixth-form colleges with plans to improve their premises and create a safe, secure and positive learning environment for their pupils, teachers and staff. Visit this page - to learn more about grants for primary schools.

If your premises need repair, renovation or expansion, and you are a single academy or part of a small MAT, then you can bid for capital from the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF). The capital funding is a government-backed fund that is administered by the Education Funding Agency (EFA) which is part of the Department for Education (DfE).
