Ahead of the launch of Round 5 of the Regional Growth Fund, Jason has been banging the drum in Parliament for manufacturers in Yorkshire. The Prime Minister has also been championing our area, yesterday visiting York to see some of the projects that are helping to grow the economy and create jobs. Yorkshire has seen the highest increase in new private sector jobs outside of London with 110,000 in the last 3 years.
Round 5 of the Regional Growth Fund opens today and runs until 9 December 2013. Funds will be available to bidders from the private sector seeking £1million or more for high quality projects and programmes that leverage private sector investment and create sustainable jobs.
The 3M Buckley Innovation Centre in Huddersfield will be holding a briefing session on the Regional Growth Fund on Friday 25th October. For more information please click here.
