Connecting Cambridgeshire has announced that due to high demand the new Digital Technology Business Grant scheme will not be taking any further Expressions of Interest from Wednesday 24 February until further notice.
The £1m scheme launched on Monday 15 February with funding from the European Regional Development Fund and Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority has proved so popular with SMEs that it is already oversubscribed with a waiting list of businesses who want to apply.
The next step is to review the 185 EOIs already received and send out application forms to businesses that have made eligible requests. Completed applications will be assessed in early March and successful businesses will be notified.
Businesses on the waiting list that have submitted EOIs will be contacted if further funds are available following the first wave of applications.
Businesses that have not been able to apply for the scheme are being advised to contact the CPCA Growth Hub to explore other support available.
