The total budget for the Super Connected Cities programme remains at £150m. The government has announced that it will make £40m of this budget available in 2015-16 to allow existing cities to run the voucher element of the scheme for longer, and new cities to participate. This prolongs the duration of the scheme, which was originally planned to run until 2014-15.
