Recovery & Resilience Grants

SEMLEP: Recovery and Resilience Grants Reopening For Expressions Of Interest

The Recovery and Resilience Grant scheme reopens for Expressions of Interest from 10 am, 4th October – 10 am, 18th October.

The Recovery and Resilience Grant scheme offers match funding to businesses to invest in new technologies, plant equipment, or machinery to help businesses create employment opportunities.

The minimum grant amount that can applied for is £5000, and the maximum grant available is £50,000. The grants are designed to build resilience for businesses that have been affected by Covid-19 by supporting investment projects that will create a significant, positive impact on the business’s future.

The Recovery and Resilience Grant scheme will be open for Expressions of Interest from 10:00 am, 4 October – 10:00 am, 18 October.

Upon completion, the Expressions of Interest will be dealt with in the order received, and a Business Advisor will then be in touch to determine your eligibility and help with the application process. The deadline to submit completed applications is midnight 28 November.
