I want to let you and your readers know that, from today, businesses across England will be able to apply for a share of £350 million of Government support to help create jobs and grow their business.
The fourth round of the successful Regional Growth Fund will be open until the 20th March and I encourage local businesses to apply for the fund.
It is a competitive fund, so your bids will be competing against others, but we want to support the highest quality, “shovel-ready” projects which can start by the end of 2013.
The first three rounds are expected to deliver over £13 billion of private sector investment and create or safeguard over 500,000 jobs across the country, and I don’t want your readers to miss out.
