East Yorkshire High Street businesses urged to ask for grants

Businesses on High Streets across East Yorkshire are being given an opportunity to enhance their business premises by accessing ‘Love Your High Street’ grant funding.

The Invest East Yorkshire team, which is part of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, can help business owners to access funding to revamp their premises, increase footfall in the town in which they’re located and boost customer engagement.

The team is able to help eligible local businesses access grants though the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) and Rural England Prosperity Fund (REPF). Advisers work closely with business owners to help them identify projects that will help their business grow and evolve, as well as identifying any sources of grant funding that may be available to help them cover the costs.

Dawn Hall of the Invest East Yorkshire team said: “Whether you’re planning to upgrade your storefront or workspace, or want to attract more customers and boost local foot traffic, our knowledgeable and friendly team is here to help and advise you. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make a meaningful impact on your business and community; give the team a call today to discuss your ideas!”
