Grant Application Service
Grants are usually awarded for specific projects or uses, are often related to particular business sectors or geographic locations, and usually require matching funds from the business. There are numerous types of grant, some are for business development, some for investment in plant or equipment and others for training.
How do you succeed in a grant application?
Initially you need to give some thought to the following:
What are your future capital expenditure plans
What makes your company different to others
What are the innovative and environmental aspects of these plans on your business
What would a grant offer enable you to do
How would a grant offer affect employment levels
You then need to meet with the grant awarding body to ascertain whether your project is eligible and try to secure approval to proceed with an application. If approval is secured and the grant authority is sufficiently interested to welcome a formal application, then invariably you will be required to submit a business plan, financial projections and an application form.
