Defra’s air quality grant scheme provides funding to eligible local authorities to help improve air quality.
The scheme helps local authorities to make air quality improvements and to meet their statutory duties under the Environment Act 1995. It has awarded nearly £70 million in funding to a variety of projects since it started in 1997.
Applications must be received by midday 8 October 2021.
The fund is split into 2 lots and we’re looking for applications for:
Lot 1 – projects designed to reduce air pollutant exceedances especially in those areas that are projected to remain in exceedance of the UK’s legal targets
Lot 2 – projects that will improve knowledge and information about air quality and steps individuals can take to reduce their exposure to air pollution and/or projects that include measures that deal with Particulate Matter
Local authorities who have a query about grant applications should contact us using the messaging tool in Bravo.
