St Ives Enterprise Grants

Small and medium sized businesses and organisations in the St Ives Town Deal can now apply for grants between £2,500 and £150,000 for a range of capital investments that could include the expansion and diversification of existing businesses, or capital grants for start-up businesses or events, all with the aim of revitalising and regenerating the St Ives area.


Due to high levels of uptake the St Ives Town Deal Enterprise Grant Scheme is currently oversubscribed.  As a result applications for Tier 1 and 2 applications are currently closed. 

At present the project team are not seeking any new Expressions of Interests for Tier 3 (over £50,000) grants.  Budgets will be reviewed in the early summer and updates issued on the Cornwall Council and the St Ives Town Deal websites.
