Grants of up to £100,000 will be available for ‘Exemplar Projects’ which demonstrate they benefit local public services and have the potential to be rolled out more widely across the country.

There is also an accompanying ‘Digital Skills Training‘ part of the programme for digital leadership training and delivery skills training for frontline local digital staff.

All bids will need to demonstrate input from at least two local authorities.
