Mayor's Regeneration Fund

About the fund

Please note that the Mayor's Regeneration Fund (MRF) is now closed to applications.

In August 2011, following the unprecedented disturbances across London, the Mayor announced a fund of £70m to invest in the long term regeneration of some of the worst affected boroughs. 

£50m was provided by the Mayor of London. £20m by the Department for Communities and Local Government and ring-fenced for investment in Tottenham and Croydon.

Over the last five years MRF projects made a real difference on the ground in local communities. We continue to deliver large-scale capital projects in Croydon, Haringey and Southwark amongst others. In Tottenham and Croydon in particular, MRF investment has acted as a stimulus fo larger scale regeneration programmes such as the Growth Zone in Croydon and the Housing Zone in Tottenham. The Mayor's regeneration team continues to work in partnership with the boroughs in this respect, and will go on to evaluate completed projects, perform an audit of existing data, and identify opportunities for improvement.
