OxLEP business

As a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic, OxLEP Business has launched a new programme designed to support Oxfordshire businesses to survive short-term and thrive longer-term.

But you’ll need to get in quick, the application window closes at 5pm on Friday 5 June.

The COVID-19 Business Resilience Fund sees OxLEP Business repurpose funding and – through a competitive process – eligible businesses can received unmatched grants from between £1,000 to £10,000.

There is £250,000 available for revenue grants and £500,000 available for capital grants.

The grant application process is competitive and applicants will need to outline how the grant would assist with activities, aligned with three programme key aims:

  • Build business resilience
  • Strengthen growth
  • Protect jobs

This new fund sits alongside OxLEP Business’ COVID-19 business support programme, which provides critical one-to-one; one-to-many and peer-to-peer support.
