The Malvern Hills Growth Grant is open for applications. The aim of the scheme is to support growing businesses based in Malvern Hills district and enable them to make a step change in their development. Growing businesses that have been trading for at least 3 years can apply for a grant of up to £2,500 which must be match-funded, pound for pound (at least), from the business’s own resources. Only capital expenditure on an approved project/investment is eligible.
The scheme is aimed at businesses that are not able to receive support through other European funded schemes (these typically support businesses that predominantly trade with other businesses).
Only businesses which show specific promise and clearly demonstrate how the award will make a measurable difference will be recommended for the grant.
Funding is limited, applications that demonstrate one or more of the following will be prioritised:
- Job creation
- Premises expansion
- Farm diversification
- The applicant business is a rural enterprise
- The applicant business operates in the low carbon economy
- The grant will be used towards expenditure that supports the business’ environmental sustainability
