Business Growth Grant

The LEP established the Business Growth Grant Programme with its Local Authority partners to support local businesses and deliver jobs across the City Region.

Local Businesses were able to apply for grants from a £14.25m fund for capital expenditure such as new plant, equipment, buildings, or adaptations; investment in new technologies; systems; software and training aid where this investment would lead to significant business growth.

The Programme has so far: 

• Created or safeguarded 1,746 jobs
• Supported 122 businesses

The Programme is currently closed to new applicants but the LEP is working with partners to identify and secure more resources to support business growth. Information on new funds will be posted here should they become available.

Information of funding for business growth can be found through the Growth Hub, by speaking to Growth Hub partners or online through
