Seconds away, RGF Round 4


A new round of the Regional Growth Fund (RGF) opens today as the Deputy Prime Minister called on businesses across the country to bid for a share of the £350 million cash pot.

The Regional Growth Fund has already helped 180 projects get started, creating and safeguarding local jobs and attracting significant private sector investment.

Nick Clegg said: “The Regional Growth Fund is already proving a shrewd investment by providing a welcome boost to jobs and growth across the country, with thousands of jobs created, businesses expanding into new markets and manufacturing new products.

“With this next round of funding, I would urge England’s budding businesses to produce top quality bids to access the money that can help them grow.”

Round 4 of the Regional Growth Fund will close to applications at noon on March 20 and bids will be appraised as quickly as possible.

Selected bidders from Round 3 are currently agreeing terms and conditions for their final offers from the accelerated timetable which was announced last October.
