NEW ERDF GRANT ELIGIBILITY FORM NOW OPEN
Our new ERDF funded grant application process will be opening shortly (early summer 2017) .
The grant will be available to pre-start, start-up and growing businesses. If you are looking to start a project in your business, which will result in business growth, then your business could be eligible for a grant. Your overall project cost could receive a grant of up to a third of the overall total cost. E.g. Project cost is £3,000 grant would be £1,000. Grants will range from £1,000 - £5,000.
The first step in this process is now open. A simple eligibility form asking some basic details about you as a business and what you would like to use the grant for.
Please complete one of the forms below (start-ups are any business trading for 12 months or less) .
Once we have checked your eligibility you will then receive an email from the OBS team to notify you of the result. If you are eligible you will be invited to apply once applications are being received.
