Building on the success and momentum of the RGF3-funded Growing the Humber business grant programme, this project will deliver a Humber-wide approach to sustaining and growing the local economy, with reference to but not exclusively, the Humber LEP’s priority sectors.
The programme will provide capital grants to SME businesses in support of business growth, investment and job creation, creating and building on an environment that enables and encourages business to seek and exploit expansion opportunities.
This £4m programme will create an additional 275 jobs and leverage an additional £20m in private sector funding.
More information, including how to apply, can be found on the Growing the Humber page.
