The Growing Places Fund

Building on the previous success of the Growing Hull & East Yorkshire Programme Fund, the Growing Places Fund is pleased to be supporting businesses from a wide range of sectors, who are continuing to underpin a vibrant local economy in both Hull & East Yorkshire, and are looking for grants and/or loans for capital expenditure.  Grants of between £5,000 and £250,000 and/or loans of between £75,000 and typically up to £250,000 are available to eligible organisations, so that they can invest in the things they need to help them grow. Businesses applying will need to demonstrate profitability, that the project is viable and ready to go. Applicants may also wish to consider potential additional benefits such as how their project may contribute to the wider clean growth and carbon reduction targets of Hull and East Yorkshire.
