Businesses and community groups involved in regenerating their area, or businesses interested in exporting, can apply for funding from new sources.
Round 2 of London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s Good Growth Fund has opened with a further £20m funding available.
Working with the London Economic Action Partnership (LEAP), the fund supports innovative, best practice regeneration activities, that enable:
- Londoners to actively participate in their local community and have a say in how their city is shaped
- delivery of co-ordinated place-based strategies that welcome growth in a way that works with the physical character of London’s many places
- diverse and accessible local economies – from our high streets and town centres to industrial areas – to realise their full potential and making London a place of opportunity for all.
To get a well-balanced programme, the Mayor’s office is encouraging collaborative proposals that bring together a range of partners to focus resources and seize opportunities in a local area.
Heathrow is offering 20 SMEs the chance to each win a grant of £2,000 to fund trade missions to help them reach new markets.
Through its partnership with Exporting is GREAT, Heathrow is offering to prepare each successful applicant for international trade as well as giving them lounge access as they depart Heathrow with programme supporter, Plaza Premium lounges.
The competition runs until Friday 14 July. Click here to enter.
