If you run a small business, you can now access grants of up to £2,000 from Crawley Borough Council to help your business grow. The grants may be used to purchase new equipment, access training, pay for an apprentice or any other reasonable expense, as long as the company match-funds the grant.
Small businesses with less than 50 employees who operate in the Crawley area will be able to apply for business support grants up to £2,000 and apprenticeship grants up to £1,500.
All Small Business Support Grants projects must be match funded 50% by the small business.
The Small Business Grant Scheme is a rolling programme and applications will be reviewed every 4 weeks. The scheme is available until September 2017 or once available funds have run out, whichever comes first.
