Who can apply?

Anyone that runs a business operating from properties across The Arch Company in England and Wales. Individual business owners and groups of owners are encouraged to sign up. To make sure everyone can come along, only one project or event per area.

How much can I apply for?

The levels of grant funding that you can apply for are between £100 – £1,500 per The Arch Company Customer.

What is the match-funding requirement for this programme?

The grants match what you’ve already raised. For example, if you apply for £500, you must have secured £500 to promote your business on ARCH DAY 2023 already. You can secure this via any means.

Anything additional to your usual activity that fires your creativity. We realise that every business owner beneath the arches has a unique offering, so reflect your passion in your projects.

Deadline to apply

The deadline to submit an application is midday Tuesday 28th March 2023.
