LEP funding call-out to City Region leaders

21st December 2012

The Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is calling on Sheffield City Region business leaders to express their interest in being part of their £25m Regional Growth Fund programme.

Businesses with robust plans for growth will have until the end of January 2013 to complete an online form to express their interest in being part of the programme. LEP Chairman James Newman, said, -This funding will help scores of businesses from across the City Region to achieve their ambitious growth plans. -Business leaders have until the end of January to let us know about how much they need and what their projects can achieve with the funding. -This programme will demonstrate how a small amount of funding can unlock significantly more direct private sector investment leading to growth and sustainable, private sector employment. The City Region's -Unlocking Business Investment programme is one of the largest programme bids in round three of the Government's Regional Growth Fund programme. The programme will unlock over £100 million of direct business investment, leading to further private sector growth across the Sheffield City Region. The footprint of this growth will be approximately 2,000 sustainable, private sector jobs including many in key sectors such as advanced manufacturing. The form can be accessed on LEP's website www.sheffieldcityregion.org.uk
