Firms urged to apply for cash

Have your say

SHEFFIELD City Regional Local Enterprise Partnership has welcomed news tens of millions of pounds of Government funding is being made available to help businesses.

The money from the fourth round of the Regional Growth Fund handouts.

James Newman, chairman of the LEP, ‘encouraged’ businesses to apply and said the LEP may bid for more funds itself to ‘top-up’ a £25m fund to help local firms.
