Heavy Duty Vehicle (HDV) Fund

To help SMEs (Small to Medium-sized Enterprises) with coaches or Heavy Goods Vehicles to get ready for the launch of the Clean Air Zone, we have secured a £10.05 million Heavy Duty Vehicle (HDV) Fund.

Eligible businesses must be able to evidence they are based within the Clean Air Zone, wider Birmingham or West Midlands area and are conducting commercial operations within the Clean Air Zone.

For Road Freight Transport for Hire or Reward Operators, funding can be a mixture of retrofit, relocation and exit lease costs. The funding available is capped at approximately £85,000 and is subject to eligibility. (Maximum €100,000 per SME, (De minimis State Aid for the current and previous 2 financial years)).
