Recovery and Resilience Grant scheme open for applications

Recovery and Resilience Grant scheme open for applications

April Foster

The Recovery and Resilience Grant scheme which provides funding to businesses who wish to invest in new technologies, machinery, and plant equipment, is open for Expressions of Interest. 

The grants cover a maximum of 50% of the total price of a project and are designed to aid future recovery, and as such, there is a requirement for businesses to plan for jobs to be created as a result. As a guide, businesses are expected to create one job per £10,000 of grant.

How much can I claim?
Eligible businesses can apply from a minimum of £5000 up to a maximum of £50,000
Am I eligible?
You can be eligible for the grant if you:
  • Are an SME.
  • Are a trading enterprise and have at least one years’ worth of accounts.
  • Are registered in the UK and have a base in the South East Midlands area.
  • Are ready to invest or expand in the local area.
  • Have not been a company ‘in difficulty’ on 31 December 2019.
