Tevi have successfully dispersed just under £448,000 of ERDF funding directly to Cornish Businesses to enable sustainable business projects.

Since November 2018 the Tevi grant fund led by Cornwall Development Company as part of the wider Tevi programme has enabled 69 businesses to complete projects that contribute to environmental growth and the circular economy. Funded activity across the county has ranged from a beaver fence, wildflower meadow, food waste composters, research into the genetics of native Cornish bees, the development of plastic free tea bags, the creation of wildlife & nature trails as well as many more interesting and varied projects.

The team have received great feedback from applicants including :

“I found the process to be transparent and fully supported throughout”.

“The support, advice and grant funding were all superb. Thank you”.

“All the staff involved have been very positive and supportive”.

The Tevi grant fund has enabled Cornish SMEs to be at the forefront of developing new products and services to contribute to environmental growth and the circular economy.


Tevi have secured a project extension until December 2022 and will have an update on the next phase of Tevi grant funding from March 2021.
