Grants are available for small and medium-sized businesses in Calderdale, looking to grow their business and create new jobs.
Businesses can use the funding for capital investment in fit-out and refurbishment of buildings, plant, machinery and equipment, creating permanent jobs in the Leeds City Region.
- Your project must create permanent new jobs in the Leeds City Region (which covers the local authority areas of Barnsley, Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York).
- You must have private finance available: either your own, from a bank, or other commercial finance to invest alongside (please note: the minimum total project cost is £50,000 – therefore you must have at least £40,000 of private sector finance to invest).
- For every £1 of LEP funding sought, you must be able to provide at least £4 of private sector investment.
- Projects must support the City Region’s key growth sectors: specifically life sciences and related industries, digital and creative industries, low carbon and environmental industries, manufacturing and financial and business services.
