Businesses and organisations in need of funding for major projects are being encouraged to contact the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

The LEP is inviting funding applications for projects worth over £1 million which will boost growth and productivity in Greater Lincolnshire.

It is especially interested in hearing about projects which address the foundations and objectives outlined in the Government’s Industrial Strategy in a way that is relevant to Greater Lincolnshire.

Projects in the LEP’s strategic priority sectors of manufacturing, agrifood and agritech, visitor economy, low carbon, health and care and ports and logistics will also be welcomed.

“While our current Growth Deal funding pot is fully allocated, it’s vital that we establish and maintain a pipeline of priority projects so that we are in a position to bid for new funds when they become available,” said Ruth Carver, Director of the Greater Lincolnshire LEP.

“When the UK Shared Prosperity Fund is announced by the Government next year, we want to have a clear position on schemes that will contribute to the delivery of our Strategic Economic Plan and our Local Industrial Strategy.

“We are therefore seeking proposals that require grant funding of at least £250,000, that have a total project cost of at least £1 million and that will contribute to economic growth and boost productivity in Greater Lincolnshire.”

Suitable projects might relate to business growth, housing, infrastructure (physical or digital), place marketing, water management, energy or skills.

Private-sector businesses and public and third-sector organisations in Greater Lincolnshire can put forward an outline business case for any project they wish to be considered in response to the call criteria. The outline business case template can be downloaded from

The deadline for the submission of outline business cases is midnight on Monday 10th December 2018.

If you are unsure whether your proposal would be suitable, contact the LEP first for an informal discussion by emailing
