Cheshire businesses can bid for a share of £200 million, the Deputy Prime Minister announced this week, as he launched round six of the Regional Growth Fund (RGF).
The Government is already investing £460 million from the first five rounds of the Regional Growth Fund in the North West, which is supporting 84 projects and programmes across the region, to create and safeguard thousands of jobs and stimulate £2.5 billion of private sector investment.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said: “I would encourage any businesses that can generate significant private sector investment and sustainable jobs to bid for a share of the £200 million available from the fund.”
Round six will be open to private sector bidders seeking £1 million or more. The Government is calling on companies to plan high quality projects that will generate significant private sector investment and sustainable jobs. Businesses will be able to submit their bids until noon on 30 September 2014.
