You could be eligible for a Growth Programme grant if your business is carrying out a project to create jobs or bring more money into the rural economy. There are 3 types of grant:
Business development
Food processing
Rural tourism infrastructure
There is a total of £165.3m of grant funding available across the three offers
The minimum grant for business development has been reduced to £35,000 (correcting the mistake in the original guidance booklet).
The deadline for expressions of interest has been extended to 31st May 2018. However, nationally, there are now more projects in the pipeline than funding available so the message to businesses and other organisations is to still apply early.
