The new grant funding agreement with BDUK gives the GLA access to a national fund of £40m for the continued delivery of the connection voucher scheme in London. There are no ring fenced allocations to cities. Funding is allocated on the basis of voucher applications approved by each of the 50 cities participating across the UK. The scheme will end once the £40m fund is fully allocated.
