Virginia Crosby MP has released this statement -
"Anglesey is set to receive £16 million pounds from the UK Governments Shared Prosperity Fund. This is brilliant news for our island, but work needs to start immediately to ensure we have a good bid in place to use this money to help level up and offer the opportunities outlined in the fund objectives.
I am looking forward to working with the council and other stakeholders to look at what we can use the money for and excited to bring yet more investment to Ynys Môn. It is imperative that the council makes this money work for our communities within the timeframe so that Anglesey benefits as much as possible from the support on offer. The new £2.6 billion fund succeeds the old EU structural funds. The money will go straight to local places right across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to invest in three local priorities; communities and place, support for local businesses and people and skills. Investment plans from local authorities must be submitted by the start of August to be considered for the funding. "
