The Enterprise M3 Wood Processing Grant Programme is an initiative to support enterprising timber businesses. The programme will provide capital grants to small and medium sized businesses to part-fund projects that create jobs and strengthen and expand the operation of the wood processing industry and hubs in the area.
If your forestry business operates in the Enterprise M3 region you could apply for an individual grant of between £35,000-£150,000.
Eligible expenditure may include machinery and equipment, or the refurbishment and expansion of premises.
The call for Expressions of Interest is now open. We encourage you to submit your Expression of Interest as soon as possible so that you have time to deliver your project. Expressions of Interest will be assessed as we receive them. Projects that are eligible and meet the criteria will be invited to submit a full application. We must receive your Expression of Interest by 10am on Monday 20 November 2017.
The initiative is run by Surrey County Council and the Forestry Commission on behalf of the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership.
