After a late phone call last night, I wanted to advise you about an extension to some regional grant funding available from the “Lets Grow” fund.
This grant funding is now available to be applied for by any business based in the North East that has planned capital expenditure projects with a value of more that £150K. The key to being successful in this round is that that expenditure must leads to the creation of new jobs or the safeguarding of existing.
I have been advised that the grant value available is around £2m but the deadlines for applications are very tight and all completed applications must be received by the 28th April 2014!!
With this in mind, if you have a project you feel may cover the criteria please contact me by Tuesday 22nd April and we can have a quick chat to see if it’s worth putting an application in. We have been successful in raising over £540K of grants for our clients from the previous rounds of Lets Grow so will be able to determine eligibility very quickly.
If you would like to learn more about raising finance for your business we have written a number of blogs HERE which can explain a bit more about our experiences in this business growth area. Or alternatively contact me via my team page which can be accessed HERE
