Digital Connectivity Grant Programme

This capital grant scheme will support superfast connection for groups of businesses not planned for inclusion in either the commercial or publicly-funded rollouts of broadband infrastructure.

Business estates or clusters in West Sussex have until midnight on 17th April 2016 to apply to the new Digital Connectivity Grant Programme which will provide up to 40 per cent of the cost of getting connected.

This funding comes from Coast to Capital’s Local Growth Fund under their ‘Growth is Digital’ key project but is being managed by West Sussex County Council.

To be eligible you must not have current access to superfast broadband services or be included in the planned delivery of the publicly funded roll out by Better Connected, a partnership of West Sussex County Council, BT and BDUK (the government department responsible for broadband delivery). The grant programme has been developed by Rural West Sussex Partnership, Gatwick Diamond Initiative, Coastal West Sussex Partnership, West Sussex County Council and the South Downs National Park Authority.

An applicant's workshop took place on 11 March.  Here are links to the presentation and FAQs from that event:
