Academies Capital Maintenance Funding 2012-13

13 September 2012

The Education Funding Agency (EFA) has recently announced a second application round for the Academies Capital Maintenance Fund 2012-13 (ACMF).

However, the £40million of funds available will be allocated only to those projects costing between £5,000-250,000 and designed to deal with urgent building condition needs such as replacement or repairs to windows, roofs, fire protection systems, boiler or heating systems and emergency asbestos work. Such projects will also need to be completed by 31 March 2013.

Whilst limited in scope and amount, this second round of funding will at least provide some consolation and a much needed capital boost to those academies that failed to secure funding for significant building needs or expansion in the first round or were not included in the list of successful schools under the Priority School Building Programme (PSBP).

Academies wishing to apply for funding will have to act quickly. On-line applications on the EFA’s bespoke ACMF portal must be completed and submitted by 28th September 2012.
