We are just taking another look this week at Grant’s, as it really is worth businesses checking them out this year.
Local grants for Birmingham and The Marches regions
Last week we talked about Growth Hubs, of which there are 38 in England. This week we are looking locally at Birmingham and The Marches regions:
Grants support is available from the Funding Round 22 of the £23.5m Business Growth Programme 2. The stipulation for applying is that you must have been trading for over 6 months. The deadline for submission of your application is Wednesday 23 December 2020.
The areas included are:
- Birmingham, Solihull, Bromsgrove, Cannock Chase, East Staffordshire, Lichfield, Redditch, Tamworth, Wyre Forest
- The Marches: Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, Herefordshire
A BGP2 grant is offered on the basis of a company creating new jobs within 7 months of improvements being made to production, processes and systems – which means you could use the grants to transition to remote working.
Do feel you can talk to us about Microsoft Dynamics 365, and applying for a grant to part-fund it. We are here to help.
