Part-funding for website projects now available from Chichester District Council

Planning a new website for a business start-up

Chichester District Council’s Economic Development Team has announced that its Enabling Grant Scheme is open for applications from 12th April to 2nd May 2021.

This funding can be used towards website and social media projects (up to £1,500, 50% match funded) and for start-up (up to £500, non-match funded). So if you’re a new business looking to create a website or an existing venture needing a new web presence, this funding opportunity may be very helpful in these challenging economic times.

From Chichester District Council:

“Funding is available to businesses in two rounds. The first round of funding will be open for applications from 12 April and will close at midnight, on 2 May 2021. It is envisaged that this first round of funding will benefit at least 20 businesses. All valid applications will be evaluated and assessed by our Economic Development Officers and the decision process may take up to 6 weeks, from the application closing date.”

A second round of funding will be available in the Autumn and will be announced in due course.

Planning a website

We can help you formulate a website plan and advise on technical spec and potential costings. Just give us a call or drop us a line and we’d be happy to discuss how you might be able to benefit from this funding.

Remember, a website is your 24/7 shop window, and don’t delay as this funding opportunity is very limited!
