How do I apply?

If you are interested in applying for a grant the first thing you need to do is submit an expression of interest form available in Icon for word Word format download [1.11MB] or in Icon for pdf PDF format download [1.09MB] (please contact us if you require an alternative format)

We will then check whether your business and what you propose to purchase are both eligible for a grant before sending you a simple, short application form. 

We will then arrange for one of the Team to visit you and talk through the process, discuss your plans for growth and, if needed, help you to submit the application.

Once we have your completed application along with financial information and copies of 3 quotes for the equipment you are looking to buy we will take your application to the panel. 

We run Grant panels twice a month and therefore are able to give you a decision very quickly, usually within 10 days of our visit.

If you'd prefer to discuss your plans with one of our team then please contact us
