£1 million in grants secured in Q2 2016
It looks like it is going to be a record breaking year for Granted and our clients based on our success in securing grant funding in the first 6 months of 2016 – we have hit £1m in the last three months alone! Success this quarter has come mainly in the form of Business Growth Grants.
The South West Growth Fund offered grants of up to £1m to ambitious businesses across the South West of England region, with the majority of the fund being used to support capital investment. Eligibility for this grant was dependent on a number of factors including the creation of new, permanent employment on the part of the applicant business.
We were delighted to secure recent funding of over £1n for local businesses including Devon Contract Waste, Image Holders, Atlas Packaging, Westbury Packaging, Hunter Stoves, Waycon and The Royal Bath & West Society, which also led to the creation of hundreds of new jobs in the region.
Although Grant applications for this particular fund have now come to an end, you can receive funding alerts as new grants are listed by signing up for our Grant Alerts. We anticipate that further funding will be released through LEP Growth Grants, ERDF Grants and LEADER Grants, amongst others – so get in touch if you think you have a project that could benefit from grant funding.
Check back here over the coming months as we will be adding case studies relating to these success stories.
