Green Bridge Supply Chain Programme

Green Bridge Icon copyWhat is Green Bridge?

The Green Bridge Supply Chain Programme was originally funded with £20 million from the Regional Growth Fund.

In February 2014, it received a further £7.5m from the European Regional Development Fund to extend the work.

Existing SME supply chain companies are invited to apply for funding to develop, grow and diversify their businesses within the green sector across the West Midlands.

The Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership is working with the LEPs in Black Country, Coventry and Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent and The Marches to deliver this important initiative.

Round 15 is now open and the deadline for submission of applications is 14th November 2014. Late applications will not be considered.

THIS IS YOUR FINAL OPPORTUNITY TO APPLY FOR GREEN BRIDGE FUNDING

Due to very limited Green Bridge Supply Chain Programme funding remaining, this will be the final competition round in which SMEs can apply for Green Bridge funding.

Round 15 is a special funding round which will run for a very limited period, opening on 27th October and closing on 14th November 2014.

As funding is restricted in this final round, we strongly recommend that you do not wait until the competition closing date, as you risk losing out on the opportunity, but submit your application as a matter of urgency and well ahead of the funding round deadline.

Preference will be given to “quick win” projects, where spend will be made within a maximum of 2 months following approval by the Birmingham City Council Investment Board.

There will be 2 funding bands in Round 15

Grant support of between, £10k to £1million is available to develop new markets, new products, skills development and purchase of capital equipment.
