Voluntary groups, public and private sector businesses have until Monday to apply for a share of £160,000 worth of funding for Greater Lincolnshire.

The Feasibility Fund, managed by Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (GLLEP) to promote investment and economic activity across the county, is open to any scheme aimed at business development and job creation.

Individual grants of up to £50,000 are avaiable, provided organisations and businesses can come up with at least half of the costs towards schemes that have gone beyond an initial, “pilot” stage.

Ursula Lidbetter MBE, chairman of the GLLEP, said: “We recognise that many organisations have the interest, enthusiasm and ideas to bring forward new development opportunities that will help us to achieve our shared ambitions for local economic growth.

“We are therefore keen to use some of our resources to help those organisations complete the detailed technical and feasibility works required and drive the best proposals forward to the point of commercial reality and delivery on site.”
