The Shropshire and Herefordshire Business Enterprise Fund (BEF) have announced that they have increased the grants available from £1,500 to £5,000 for start-up businesses and from £5,000 to 10,000 for existing businesses.
Those businesses that have already been successful in securing a BEF grant are welcome to re-apply to top up their original grant on a new project. The grant needs to be used towards a capital project which would need to be 50% match funded.
For a repeat application the only documents we would require are:
- A new application (We already have your business plan)
- Trading figures from when you received the grant to date.
If you would like to take advantage of this larger grant, then please contact your area Business Support Officer and they will forward you the information you will require.
