New Year boost for the Horsham district’s tourism businesses

The Council's Economic Development team has successfully secured over £72,000 of funding from the Local Enterprise and Apprenticeship Platform (LEAP) Small Business Grants Scheme to support small businesses in the Horsham district.

The scheme will be launched on 31 January 2018 and will be aimed at the district’s small visitor economy businesses in order to boost the tourism economy.

The council will be granting funds of up to £4,000 per organisation in three tranches throughout out the year.

Applicants will need to show how their project/initiative will increase the number of visitors coming to the district and how their project will help to promote the core themes in the recently published Visitor Economy Strategy.
