- LEP GRANT FUNDING -
- WEST OF ENGLAND LEP -
Under the Devolution Deals announced by the coalition government and updated by the incumbent government, LEPs were formed to channel UK and EU funding to prioritised sectors as set out in Strategic Economic Plans by each LEP. See more detail on LEPs and how that are operating here.
For example, Communities Secretary, Greg Clark produced a multi-billion pound support offer to boost Local Growth Across LEPs. Read the Full Story Here.
The West of England LEP has published a Strategic Economic Plan that details the priorities for the region to 2030. The plan highlights support for specific sectors within the region which we have extrapolated for you convenience and listed below:
If your business falls within one of these sectors, you are among the most eligible in your region to attain grant funding.
Creative & Digital Media
Advanced Engineering & Aerospace
Low carbon technology & services
Airport & Port Developments
Grant funding which is potentially open to your business, includes Growth Deal and ESIF. The amounts of funding available are dependent on the specific calls, but will range from £1,000 to £5m depending on the size and scope of your specific project. Funding will be awarded for innovation, business growth, training and infrastructure projects.
Funding can be competitive, and it is essential to be proactive - if your business operates in one of these highlighted sectors you would strongly benefit from developing a Grant Portfolio, which can then be used to register funding interest with the LEP and move forward with an application.
