ERDF Visitor Economy and Wider Economy Grant SME Grants

Coast to Capital are pleased to announce that they have further funding available for eligible SMEs in the Coast to Capital LEP area.

The Visitor Economy (Kickstart Tourism) and Wider Economy (Restart & Recovery SME) grant is available to help smaller businesses adapt and diversify following the immediate challenges faced by COVID-19. Funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), eligible SMEs can access grants of between £1,000 – £3,000 (up to £5,000 in exceptional circumstances) for specialist advice.

The grant scheme was launched on Monday 30 November and full applications will need to be returned with related quotes by Monday 7 December 2020 at 11:59pm. Further information, including full eligibility criteria and the information that businesses will need to have ready, can be found online here.

It is likely that this scheme will be over-subscribed and therefore we encourage businesses to submit their application as soon as possible, as eligible applications will be assessed in the order that they arrive.

Please note that our team are unable to provide further information about this scheme by telephone or email. All enquiries are being directed Coast to Capital LEP website.
