What is CIF?

The Condition Improvement Fund is an annual bidding round for eligible academies and sixth-form colleges to apply for capital funding. The priority for the fund is to address significant condition need, keeping academy and sixth-form college buildings safe and in good working order. This includes funding projects to address health and safety issues, building compliance and poor building condition. Applications for fire safety improvements represent one of the highest priorities when allocating Condition Improvement Funds.

Who can apply?

Single academy trusts, small multi-academy trusts (MATs), sixth-form colleges and non-diocesan VA schools can apply for CIF. To be eligible to apply for the 2020 to 2021 round, you must have been:

  • an open academy, sixth-form college or non-diocesan VA school as at 1 September 2019
  • a school with a signed academy order as at 1 September 2019 (if successful, you must have converted to academy status and had a funding agreement in place by 1 April 2020 to receive funding)
