Growing Our Potential – Support for Businesses to Grow

CLEP’s Growing Our Potential Programme is funded by Government’s Local Growth Fund and is designed to support growth, increase productivity, foster innovation and create jobs.

The fund can support capital investment in established SMEs with CLEP providing between 10-40% of the total investment with the grant range between £50,000 and £200,000. Applicants will need to demonstrate a clear need for public funding support and that their project can be completed by 31 December 2020.

Further information on the Fund is contained in the scheme guidance.
