Funding available for new businesses in Keighley

New business in Keighley will be able to apply for grants of up to £5,000 thanks to European funding.

Bradford Council has secured funding to provide local small businesses in Keighley with grants to accelerate business growth and stimulate new jobs.

Grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 are available to new business start-ups, the self-employed and existing micro and Small Medium Enterprise businesses that are not supported by existing local programmes.

In exceptional circumstances, a grant value of £7,500 will be considered.

Applicants will need to demonstrate what is exceptional about their proposed project. To be eligible for the Keighley Community Led Local Development Small Scale Business Grant scheme, the businesses must operate within a defined area in Keighley.

Applicants are required to provide 20 per cent towards total grant project costs.

The Keighley CLLD small grants scheme is part funded by Bradford Council and the England European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.
