Free CIF funding application support

If you are an academy or sixth-form college applying for CIF (Condition Improvement Fund) funding for new buildings or classroom expansions but are finding the process daunting and time consuming, we at Sunesis would be delighted to offer you free support and assistance with your bid.

The ESFA (Education and Skills Funding Agency) is welcoming CIF applications for 2019-2020 projects from academies and sixth-form colleges who have urgent concerns with health and safety issues, building compliance and poor building conditions. A lot of the available fund is for renovations but the ESFA are accepting bids for replacing outdated classrooms and blocks whilst also supporting a small number of expansion projects.

All applications for new classrooms or expansions require a detailed knowledge on the design, cost and construction programme, which is advice that we are experienced in and would be pleased to assist you with. We also have previous experience with successful CIF applications and experts who can provide you with the tools required for your bid.

The deadline for the 2019-2020 financial year is fast approaching. All applicants need to be registered by 17:00 November 30, with the application deadline midday on December 13.

Whether you have finished your CIF application for new classrooms and would like some feedback, or if you are just starting the process and would welcome some guidance from our education specialists, call Fran Cox on 07950 717804 or through our contact form here who will be very happy to discuss how we can help.
