The third round of the Mayor’s Good Growth Fund will open for applications on 2 September.

Working with the London Economic Action Partnership (LEAP), the fund supports projects that empower people, make better places and grow prosperity.

Through rounds 1 and 2 we have already supported 52 such projects, led by a wide range of public, private and third-sector organisations. We’re also helping 42 projects to develop, scope and define their plans further.

In Round 3, there is over £20 million funding available. To get a well-balanced programme, we’re encouraging collaborative proposals that bring together a range of partners to focus resources and seize opportunities in local areas across London. 

We will once again be providing place-based workshops, during the first two weeks in September, to introduce potential applicants to the Good Growth Fund. This time we’re particularly interested in people who haven’t yet attended a Good Growth Fund workshop or engaged with Officers in our Area Teams. If you are planning to work with partners on integrated area-based proposals, or if you are aware of other organisations looking to submit proposals, please do make them aware of the workshops.

For established partners you can register your interest in attending a workshop – we’ll be in touch closer to the date to confirm if there is capacity to accommodate you. In the meantime, please feel free to get in touch with your Area Team contact to discuss any emerging plans.

Round 3 applications will be fully managed through the Greater London Authority’s online investment management system (GLA OPS). Instructions on how to register with GLA OPS are available on our website. If you are intending to apply it’s worth registering on the system as soon as you can.
