On the 1st August 2022 a Devolution Deal between the government and the local authorities of York and North Yorkshire was announced. This included the proposal to establish a York and North Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority.
As a mayoral combined authority, the York and North Yorkshire Combined Authority will be awarded £7 million of funding across 2023/24 and 2024/25 to enable the area to drive green economic growth towards our ambitions to be a carbon negative region.
This includes £1m of revenue funding and £6m of capital funding. The revenue funding will support the development of net zero projects (the Project Development Support strand), and the capital funding will enable the delivery of net zero projects (the Capital Grants for Project Delivery strand).
This prospectus sets out an opportunity to bid for this funding. Initially we are looking for proposals that will help to deliver this initial funding allocation. However we would also like to build up a pipeline of further projects for future years, so we would still like to hear from you about potential future net zero opportunities.
This funding forms part of the York and North Yorkshire devolution deal and is subject to the deal securing necessary approvals. If devolution is agreed, the funds will be administered by a new Mayoral Combined Authority (MCA).
