Growing Places Fund – Round 13 now open for 1st Stage Applications

Growing Places funding is available as short term loans to support companies investing in the future ready for the  emerging business demand in the regional, national and global markets.

Round 13 is now open to receive Stage 1 applications and will close at 11:59pm on Friday 7th June 2019. Please see the Call Specification for more details. Successful projects will need to demonstrate that they will generate economic growth in a short space of time with the right infrastructure in place. They will need to show that they have a solid business case, are deliverable in a reasonably short timescale, will create jobs or housing and provide returns which can be reinvested locally by the LEP, in addition to attracting further private investment.
