Grant bids invited

PROJECTS that create jobs could be in with a chance of government funding but applicants need to hurry.

The Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership is inviting expressions of interest by January 31 for bids to the Regional Growth Fund. Applications will also be assessed on aspects including the level of private sector investment and value for money. They are welcomed from both start-up and established businesses with a total project investment of at least £500,000.

Doncaster Council’s Invest in Doncaster team can help people with any queries and suggest alternative funding sources if needed.
