Small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) are being offered grand funding worth up to £20,000 if they relocate or expand their business to Northamptonshire.

Since its launch last year, the 'reLOCATE' grant has attracted hundreds of investments into the county. But it's not too late to get your hands on £20,000 worth of funding.

The Northamptonshire Enterprise Programme (NEP) has opened a fifth round of applications.

Tim Bagshaw, Head of Business Investment, NEP, said: “Northamptonshire’s business support is business led and we are seeing some exciting results in terms of growth, prosperity and innovation amongst companies throughout the county.

“We encourage businesses that may be considering a move to get in touch and take advantage of our extensive support package and incentives such as LOCATE now.”

LOCATE is managed by NEP and funded by Northamptonshire County Council. County Council Leader, Cllr Jim Harker, said: “Locate is an innovative project, funded by Northamptonshire County Council, which is helping to boost the economy of our county by bringing in new investment and creating new jobs.

“I am very pleased that the County Council is able to work in this way with our partners, NEP, for the benefit of the county’s prosperity.”
