New Round to Open End of February 2020

The small business LEAP Grant returned in June 2019 for another new round of funding. A starting total of £142,000 has been available to apply for through Horsham District Council, until June 2021. The highly successful Local Enterprise and Apprenticeship Platform (LEAP) Small Grant Scheme is being targeted, this time, at the District’s small businesses and start-ups.

Funding will be available through a 50% match funding scheme, up to the value of £2,000 of grant funding per organisation, and calls for applications are in 6 tranches throughout the 2 year period. The third call for funding bids will open to applications at the end of February 2020. Funding will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and once all funding is allocated, the application window will close.

Anyone interested in starting their own business or looking to make the next step-up in their business’ development are encouraged to apply for funding. More information, as well as a link to the online application, can be found on the LEAP Funding page. Your business must be located in Horsham District and have less than 20 FTE in order to be eligible.

It’s time to take the LEAP!
