The Humber Business Growth Hub is intending to launch its Covid-19 Recovery Grants Scheme approximately w/c 14 September (date to be confirmed), subject to finalisation of the application process for the scheme.
The discretionary grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 can be used for various Covid-19 recovery projects*, e.g. working with a consultant to identify ways to diversify businesses or to help restructure the workforce; to purchase small items of equipment, or, if you are a hospitality business, to perhaps move to contactless pay or develop an app (*not exhaustive).
Businesses are requested to send an EOI (enquiry of interest) as soon as possible to the Growth Hub, which will ensure they will be the first to be made aware of when the grants scheme goes live. Further information and instruction on how to send an EOI can be found here.
The Growth Hub hopes start to acknowledging EOIs at the end of the week, and will provide more detail and information on the grant scheme so we would urge businesses to send in their EOI quickly.
We will share any further information as we hear it, but please also regularly check the Humber Business Growth Hub website.
