The final funding round has launched
This will be the final competition round for the Green Bridge Supply Chain Programme (GBSCP) and your last opportunity to apply for this funding to help develop/grow your business.
Round 5 has £9 million of funding remaining to help support business growth/ diversification within the green sector across the West Midlands.
As this is the last competition round, we are extending the competition period to give businesses more time to complete/submit their applications.
Round 5 is now open and the deadline for submission of applications is 31st January 2014. Late applications will not be considered.
GBSCP is a competition funded with £20 million from the Regional Growth Fund. We and 6 Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) are working together to deliver this important initiative, which covers Greater Birmingham and Solihull, Black Country, Coventry and Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent and The Marches.
Grant support of between, £20k to £1million is available to develop new markets, new products, skills development and purchase of capital equipment.
All projects will need to be completed by March 2015.
