Let's Grow North & East Yorkshire is a £4 million Regional Growth Fund programme managed by BE Group in partnership with Clive Owen LLP.
The programme provides grant support for capital investment and R&D projects that will create new, sustainable jobs in North Yorkshire, the City of York and the East Riding of Yorkshire. Grant support is available for business expansion and diversification and is designed to help firms to expand their operations or to set up new establishments in the region.
Let's Grow is aimed towards manufacturing businesses and service sector businesses offering more than a local service. Grants are available to businesses of all sizes, with higher levels of support available to SMEs. The programme operates under strict State Aid rules, so non-SMEs will only be eligible by exception – please speak to one of our advisors.
The programme supports projects of £125,000 or more which will be completed by March 2017. Projects must meet the eligibility criteria of the programme and are also judged on their levels of impact and value for money.
Grants of £25,000 to £1,000,000 are available and the levels of support we can offer range from 10% to 25% of the eligible project expenditure. The level of support offered in each case will be determined by factors including the location of the project, the type of expenditure involved, the size of the company and the level of job creation.
