Information on the Regional Growth Fund (RGF), including latest news and how to access the RGF and other funding sources.
The Regional Growth Fund (RGF) has supported eligible projects and programmes raising private sector investment to create economic growth and lasting employment.
Investing £2.6 billion to help businesses in England to grow, RGF is expected to create or safeguard around 289,000 jobs.
The third annual monitoring report covers the performance of RGF between Rounds 1 to 5.
No future rounds of the RGF are proposed.
RGF funding programmes
RGF money is available currently through a small number of RGF programmes. RGF programmes are run by national or local organisations offering grants and/or loans to eligible businesses. If you run a business and are looking for funding of less than £1 million, you may be able to apply to an RGF programme.
Please note each RGF programme will have specific criteria for applications. Contact the respective programme lead directly. They can tell you whether you are eligible and suitable for their programme.
Exceptional Regional Growth Fund (eRGF)
Ministers reserve the option to use the eRGF funding to respond quickly to significant economic shocks or exceptional bids that present an opportunity to secure internationally mobile investment. eRGF funding is strictly limited, only exceptionally strong bids will be supported and they will be subject to due diligence by BEIS.
