Salix works in partnership with the Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) with the aim of reducing carbon and saving academies money. We have two funding streams open to academies:

Salix Energy Efficiency Fund (SEEF)

First open in 2016 available for Sixth Form Colleges, Academies, Free Schools and Multi-Academy Trusts solely for energy efficiency projects. We have received a good response to this pilot and hope that applications will open again between October and January.

Condition Improvement Fund (CIF)

If you are an Academy or Sixth Form College you can receive funding through the Condition Improvement Fund which is open for applications between October and December. If there is an energy saving aspect to the project you can apply for a Salix loan as part of the CIF bid. Please note that large Multi-Academy Trusts with more 3,000 pupils and 5 academies cannot apply for this funding.


A short flyer on choosing between the two schemes is here. Salix also held a webinar in November 2016 explaining CIF and SEEF.
