Between 24 March and 22 April 2022, medium-sized cities in Poland are able to apply for co-funding to develop their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). The national Ministry of Funds and Regional Policy has set up an 8 million Zloty programme, which will be managed by the Centre for EU Transport Projects.
In its communication announcing the launch of the programme, the ministry emphasised that a well-structured and conducted SUMP is key for the development of sustainable mobility in cities, as well as being important to improving the quality of urban space.
Poland has previously run other support measures to encourage the take-up of SUMPs in the country, including holding workshops focusing on good practice examples and providing direct advice to cities. The Minister of Funds and Regional Policy, Grzegorz Puda, said that his ministry would continue “supporting investments in low-emission and modern collective transport from European funds. We are launching recruitment for SUMP funding under the Infrastructure and Environment Programme.”
