  3. Applying

    The size of the fund will not allow the THI to tackle all of the possible building projects in the area. Therefore a process of prioritisation has taken place to identify the optimum mix of buildings and works which will best help achieve the success of the THI. The capital projects to be targeted are a confident yet realistic set of projects which will enhance some of the most needy buildings and spaces in the THI area.
