A fund launched by Bolsover District Council at the start of 2016 has been helping businesses from across the District. So far nine businesses have benefitted from the fund, totalling approximately £71k towards their future growth.
The Business Growth Fund (BGF) was initially limited to those areas not eligible for BNED LEADER Approach funding, but it has now been opened up to all businesses across the district.
Grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 towards project costs are available (funding up to 90% of eligible costs) and will be awarded to businesses based upon their ability to achieve economic growth and/or jobs growth within the District.
All project activity will need to be completed by December 2018.
