Government Business Grants

The Additional Restrictions Grant Growth Fund is now available for local businesses.

Through the scheme there are 3 grants available:

  1. Business start-up programme
  2. Rural diversification grant
  3. Town centre business enhancement grant

The grants are aimed at simulating growth and diversification in the Melton area. They are available to local businesses who can demonstrate that any funding received will go towards supporting either growth within their business or supporting growth in the local economy.

Due to the limited amount of funding available the following considerations will be considered when assessing grant applications

  • The amount of funding leveraged by the grant award
  • Jobs created and/or safeguarded
  • Wider impact on the local economy
  • Encouraging sustainable business practices

Applications can be submitted from Fri 27 Aug 2021 until 31 Jan 2022 or until or grant money is expended.

We will continue to give priority to fully completed applications with all supporting evidence, before the application goes before a Grant panel to assess the potential of each application. It is anticipated that these grants will be over subscribe.
