About the fund
We have developed this fund to support businesses to move towards increased digitisation.
The expression of interest window will be open between 8 and 12 March.
We will support businesses that seek funding for:
- 1-2-1 specialist digital advice
- new technology, such as e-commerce platforms, contactless payment systems, website development, software development, IT hardware and software for example, to support remote working, digitisation of processes
The minimum funding amount is £1,000 and the maximum funding amount is £5,000. Up to 100% of project costs can be funded, including irrecoverable VAT if the business is not VAT registered.
The funding is also able to provide a contribution to a larger project where the applicant is able to pay any remaining costs over £5,000.
The scheme is open to businesses with less than 50 employees. We are particularly keen to receive applications from those with less than 10 employees.
One application per business is allowed.
Businesses that make an overall profit once fund income is included are subject to tax.
If your project is ineligible for this scheme you may be able to access an alternative Lincolnshire County Council grant.
