Growing the Humber is a business investment scheme providing grant funding to SMEs in order to stimulate growth, investment and job creation. The project extends by £8m the current £4m LGF funded scheme which has already exceeded its jobs targets. The refreshed scheme will complement and support access to the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, alongside local work to improve investment readiness.
