The Community Infrastructure Levy Neighbourhood Fund (CILNF)

The Community Infrastructure Levy Neighbourhood Fund (CILNF) is available to support projects being delivered within the City of London (the Square Mile) only. The scope of projects that can be funded by the CILNF is wider than that for general Community Infrastructure Levy funds and includes:

  • The provision, improvement, replacement, operation or maintenance of infrastructure.
  • Anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area.

This definition is deliberately wide to allow local communities to determine their priorities and how the CILNF should be used.


Your organisation must be one of the following:

  • Constituted voluntary organisation or resident association
  • Constituted business organisation and association
  • Registered charity
  • Registered community interest company
  • Charitable company (incorporated as not for profit)
  • Registered charitable incorporated organisation
  • Exempt or excepted charity
  • Registered charitable industrial and provide society or charitable cooperative

You need to submit supporting documents with your online application.

We encourage you to contact the Central Grants Unit to discuss your eligibility and project plans.
