We launched the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund in February 2013.
It gives match-funding to London boroughs and partners that come up with new schemes and projects designed to improve air quality.
We have made £6m of funding available for 2013/14 to 2015/16. This is helping support a wide range of projects including: freight consolidation; green walls; reducing and measuring construction pollution; responsive digital signs to reduce engine idling; support for low emission vehicles; and awareness-raising, education and business engagement schemes.
The next round of funding will be available for projects from April 2016. We expect the fund will provide £20m in total over ten years.
Applications will open in early 2015 and information will be available here shortly.
