£4m grant funding for Cumbrian businesses - apply now!

07 May 2015

The £4m Cumbria Growth Fund is now open for business. Manufacturing businesses (including artisan producers) or those in business services of any size throughout Cumbria are eligible to apply for grant funding of between £10,000 and £1m.
The process is simple. The first stage is to submit an Expression of Interest
If you’re a Small or Medium Sized Enterprise (fewer than 250 full time equivalent employees) then a Growth Hub adviser is available free of charge to help with  Expression of Interest and any subsequent application and to help you access any other support available to you. Contact janice@cumbriachamber.co.uk or call 0845 226 0040 to arrange.
If you’re a larger business then please do contact us before completing your  Expression of Interest so that we can check eligibility and discuss the percentage of funding likely to be available to you before you do too much work on it! Contact suzanne@cumbriachamber.co.uk or call 0845 226 0040.
Summary scheme guidelines are available and our advisers can provide further details and support.
We will respond within two  weeks of receipt, either inviting you to submit a full application or explaining why your idea is not eligible.
The grants panel which will assess full applications will be meeting monthly, click here to view the panel schedule.

Please note that start-up businesses are not eligible.
