£137 million of EU funding for local businesses

Have your say

Businesses from Kent, Essex and East Sussex are set to benefit from £137 million of European funding to increase competitiveness, reduce unemployment and support rural development.

EU funding plays an important role in creating sustainable and inclusive growth and this is a real opportunity for Kent, Essex and East Sussex businesses to access extra funding.

Funds are available by applying to the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

I want to encourage local businesses and communities to make use of these funds available – they’re yours for the taking.
