Tracking Local Growth Funding in the UK
In a new collaborative project started in summer 2019 with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, ODI Leeds will be working to create a visual 'dashboard' that can summarise local growth funding across the UK and aid analysis of the future needs of projects. By looking at current and historical spending periods, we can calculate how much local growth funding would need to be a part of future spending reviews. We will also explore where the UK sits internationally in terms of local/regional funding, comparing it with other OECD countries.
