£29.45m cash boost to help create jobs and growth in Lincolnshire

Communities Secretary Sajid Javid has announced a cash boost of £29.45 million to help Greater Lincolnshire create jobs, support businesses and encourage growth.

The latest round of Local Growth Funding (also known as the Growth Deal) provides money for a new Centre for Health Science at the University of Lincoln, support for the establishment of three Food Enterprise Zones in Holbeach, Hemswell Cliff and Grimsby and a Skills Capital Programme across Greater Lincolnshire.

Other projects will also benefit which aim to improve educational attainment, create jobs, build homes or improve infrastructure.

This latest £29.45 million funding will make a real difference to people in Greater Lincolnshire. As well as creating new jobs and supporting businesses, we’re investing in the next generation with a new skills programme to improve access to further education. It will give young people the tools they need to reach their potential.

It is further proof that we will back the people of Greater Lincolnshire with resources to get the region firing on all cylinders, now and in years to come.

– Andrew Percy MP, Local Growth Minister
