Welsh Government Future Proofing Fund


Check if your business is eligible to benefit from grants to help reduce running costs.

Micro, small and medium-sized businesses in the retail, hospitality, and leisure sectors can now check if they are eligible for Welsh Government funding to help them reduce their running costs. 

Grants of between £5,000 and £10,000 will be available through the Welsh Government’s Future Proofing Fund to help businesses to invest in renewable energy technology, carry out improvements to the fabric of business premises, and upgrades to systems or machinery to reduce energy use.

To apply for the funding, the business must:

  • be located in Wales and employ people in Wales; 
  • employ between 1 and 249 people;
  • have been trading since before 1 April 2023;
  • operate from a property with a rateable value between £6,001 and £51,000; and
  • either own or are leasing the business premises on a minimum 3-year lease that extends beyond 1 April 2026.

Check if you’re eligible for the funding now, before the applications open in May 2024.

The applications for the fund are open on a competitive call until 11:59pm on Thursday 6 June 2024 or until the total value of submitted applications exceeds the budget allocation. 

You can use this tool to check your eligibility for the funding:
