Growth Support Kickstart Grant Scheme

It follows the recent government announcement of a £10 million national investment to kickstart the tourism economy and a £20 million national investment to support small business to get going again and recover from the impacts of COVID-19. The Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership (HotSW LEP) has been awarded a £771,164 share of this funding to help with the economic recovery in the region.
 
The funding is expected to be administered by The European Regional Development Funded (ERDF) Heart of the South West Growth Support Programme to support tourism sector businesses and other small businesses.
 
Businesses across the Heart of the South West LEP area will be able to make a single application for a grant of between £1,000 and £3,000 in the coming weeks to fund the purchase of:
  • Specialist consultancy;
  • Minor items that enable the business to adopt new technology that supports its day to day running costs;
  • Minor items that enable the business to adapt existing technology that supports its day to day running costs.
  •  
The aim of the fund is to support as many businesses as possible, with grants being issued on a first come first served basis through the completion of a simple application form.
