Are you a school, academy or sixth form college looking to renew your ageing roof through a Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) bid this year?


The Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) in the UK is a government programme designed to provide financial support for the improvement and maintenance of the condition of educational buildings in England. It is primarily aimed at schools and colleges.


The CIF allocates funding to address issues related to the physical condition of school or college buildings, such as repairing roofs, windows, heating systems, and other essential infrastructure.


The fund is competitive, and educational institutions need to submit applications outlining their project proposals. Successful applicants receive grants to help ensure that educational facilities are safe, secure, and conducive to effective learning.


The CIF plays a crucial role in maintaining and upgrading the infrastructure of educational institutions across the country.
