Round 2 of the Regional Growth Fund (RGF) opened on the 12 April and will close at noon 1 July 2011. Just under £1 billion will be available in this round.

To support Round 2 there are currently a series of RGF roadshows travelling across England, chaired by Lord Heseltine and Sir Ian Wrigglesworth. These offer presentations on the Fund's objectives, clinics on the RGF application process and programme bids, and offer potential bidders an individual session to discuss their proposed bid. To date these events have been very well received.
