The Air Quality Grant is a competitive grant and eligible local authorities can apply for support on innovative projects to reduce air pollution. Projects are evaluated based on air quality priorities.

We have provided almost £500 million to local authorities to enable action to tackle harmful roadside emissions including through clean air zones, and more than £3 million will be awarded to local authorities this year via the Air Quality Grant Fund.
