UKSPF and grant funding

With the Government providing funding to local authorities through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) and the Rural Economy Prosperity Fund (REPF), there are a number of business support and grant fund programmes running across the county. We’ve pulled together those that are available for businesses in the visitor economy and put them in one place so they are easier to find. Some of the programmes are only available to those in specific districts, while others are county wide. We will continue to add more programmes to this list as they become available. Find out what is currently available for businesses in your area below.
