Today BCP Council has launched a new Bounce Back Challenge Fund to help turbo-charge innovative economic recovery projects across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.
The Council will be providing funding specifically for projects which demonstrate innovation, provide clear benefits for the local economy, generate pride in the place we live and are deliverable.
This is a competitive process that aims to unearth and fund a limited number of concepts from as wide a profile as possible within the local business community.
Businesses of all sizes and types (including charities) within the area can apply. They may award:
- Up to £15,000 – for smaller projects or individual business ideas
- Up to £70,000 – for larger projects which can include partnership or cross-sector working
The application period will run from today (Monday 19 April) and closes on 7 May 2021.
