The Micro Business Grant is available to help businesses of up to nine employees and can fund activities including:

  • Business planning
  • Accessing new markets

The grant will cover 50% of the total project costs up to a maximum of £3,000 and will now consider applications for small capital investments, such as machinery.

In 2016/17, £20,805 was awarded to 10 businesses in East Lindsey during rounds one and two.

Portfolio Holder for Market Towns and Rural Economy, Councillor Adam Grist said: “The Fund is about supporting micro businesses to grow by contributing towards the essential investment that can help a business to realise its potential.

“It’s important that we continue to support local businesses which help to boost the economy of East Lindsey and employ local people. We very much look forward to receiving and considering applications over the coming weeks.”
