Round 6 of the Regional Growth Fund (RGF) was launched by the government earlier this month, with £200M available in round six for private sector bidders seeking £1M or more for projects that will generate significant private sector investment and sustainable jobs.
The Leeds Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is able to support Leeds City Region firms by providing advice and feedback on applications, and endorsing good quality bids that fit with its strategic priorities.
LEP Chair, Roger Marsh said:
“I welcome the announcement by government today of a sixth round of the Regional Growth Fund. Leeds City Region companies have benefitted from well over £100m of investment through the first five rounds of RGF, and I urge companies interested in bidding for a share of the £200m on offer through round six to contact the LEP for support.”
Companies that went on to secure RGF support in previous rounds include Haribo in Pontefract, Leeds-based bed manufacturer, Harrison Spinks, Cummins in Huddersfield and Borg Warner in Bradford.
RGF round six will be open to private sector bidders seeking £1M or more. Businesses will be able to submit their bids until noon on 30th September 2014.
The government is also holding road shows and expression of interest days throughout the country to provide advice on how to make a successful RGF bid. On 8th July 2014 an event will be held at the Keepmoat Stadium, Doncaster, for more information email email@example.com.
