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:

Please contact us if you require an alternative format.

Please check the eligibility criteria carefully before completing the form.

We will check whether your business and what you propose to purchase are both eligible for a grant before sending you a simple, short application form. Eligibility checks usually take 5 - 7 days to complete.

If eligible, we will arrange for one of the team to contact 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 or service you are looking to purchase, your application will be reviewed by our grant assessment panel. 

Panels meet twice a month so you'll receive a decision very quickly, usually within 14-28 days of submitting your full application.  Please note that at busy times you may have to wait longer for a decision.

If you have any questions, please contact us.
