New grant schemes for Dudley borough businesses
21 Dec 2023
More than £450,000 worth of funding is available to support Dudley borough businesses as Dudley Council launches two brand-new grant schemes.
The Dudley SME Grants Programme and the Dudley Decarbonisation and Net Zero Grants Programme are open to SMEs that have been trading for 12 months or longer.
The SME Grants Programme focuses on stimulating business and enterprise activity, encouraging investment, and creating local jobs.
The Decarbonisation and Net Zero Grants Programme will support businesses to make carbon savings through increased energy and resource efficiency.
Both schemes are funded by the UK Government via the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
Before applying for a grant, businesses will need to complete a business diagnostic with Business Growth West Midlands in Dudley. Business growth advisors will support businesses to prepare growth action plans, develop their investment projects and access funding opportunities.
Businesses that are interested in applying for the Dudley Decarbonisation and Net Zero Grants Programme will be supported by their business growth advisor to access a free energy audit or on-site carbon reduction survey prior to applying.
To register your interest in these fantastic new programmes, make an enquiry through the Business Growth West Midlands website or get in touch with Dudley Business First via email@example.com or 01384 812001.
