Merseyside Jobs and Growth Fund 

The Merseyside Jobs and Growth Fund is managed by St Helens Chamber and provides grants for businesses planning to expand or invest in Liverpool City Region, creating new jobs for local people.

Funded through the Government’s Regional Growth Fund, grants of up to £75,000 are available to provide investment for growth when suitable finance is not available elsewhere. Grants are available for a range of capital projects that will create new employment opportunities, such as purchasing new premises, expanding current premises or capital expenditure on plant and machinery.

How does it work?

The Merseyside Jobs & Growth Fund aims to support businesses create new jobs in Merseyside and Halton. Businesses can apply for grants of up to 20% of their total project value. Eligible projects should have a minimum net value of £30,000. There is no upper limit to the project value but the maximum award is £75,000 and the 'cost per job' should be approximately £6,000 of grant for each new or safeguarded job.  For example:

Project value: £30,000 - Grant available: £6,000 - at least 1 job created or safeguarded
Project value: £375,000 and above - Grant available: £75,000 - approximately 12 jobs created or safeguarded
