In total, £3,768,000 of funding was provided to develop the Kirklees initiative, which formed part of the local e-government programme. This initiative is now entirely self-sustaining and no longer relies on funding from central Government.

The Kingston upon Hull project has been allocated £30,000 from the overall award which was made to the runners-up in the Department's 2007 Digital Challenge competition to enable them to develop their key projects.

CLG has no responsibility for the Glasgow digital television initiative.
