Grant Funding

BEE Anglia has grants of up to £10,000 available to businesses.

There are specific criteria that must be followed to receive funding.  Our team of advisors are here to help; please ensure you use them, to help you avoid errors in the process.

Key Points:

  • The Grants Panel looks to maximise impact from the grant pot. A brief Expression of Interest form will be assessed by the panel, with successful applicants being invited to submit in full. 
  • Grants pay up to 40% of costs (typically 30%. See below for details).
  • Maximum grant award of £10,000.  Awards of over £5,000 will only be made to very strong applications.
  • Procurement restrictions mean that contracts of over £25,000 will not generally be eligible for grant support.
  • Minimum project spend, including the grant & private contributions: £2,000
  • Eligibility criteria apply (see here for details)
  • Applications must be endorsed by a BEE Anglia advisor
  • Grants will not support projects already committed to (e.g. where payment has been made, orders have been placed, work has started, etc.)
