ROTHERHAM businesses are being urged to bid for a £3,000 investment influx.
E.ON’s Sustainable Business Fund is an independently-run fund to help small and medium business customers who are struggling with their energy bills.
Eligible South Yorkshire based small and medium business owners are invited to apply for up to £3,000 of funding to help with energy debt and to access online training programmes in subjects which can enable business owners to learn or refresh core business skills.
These include accountancy, project management and social media skills.
The E.ON Sustainable Business Fund has been set-up to give back closed credits — money which the energy firm E.ON has been unable to return to business customers who have left or ceased trading — to struggling but solvent small and medium businesses which meet its eligibility criteria.
The fund is being independently managed by Charis Grants, which will play a major role in the funding process, from handling applications through to decision-making and issuing payments.
The fund is open to E.ON-supplied small and medium business owners who have been with E.ON for more than 12 months.
Businesses which could be eligible should contavy E.ON on 0345 301 5898 or visit eonsustainablebusinessfund.com.
