It must be a collaboration of either CITB registered businesses, federations or CITB Training groups and a minimum of 3 from either of them. Value of this fund is £10,000 to £500,000 and CITB fund 70% of the total cost of a project.

Structured Fund:

This is where CITB have identified the issue based on the evidence base and identified the outcomes we wish to achieve. We also set the amount of funding available for each commission. The commissions are open to the organisation that are best able to deliver the outcomes, however most will also require a collaboration that includes 2 other organisations from the 3 categories CITB Registered business, Federation or Training Group.
