The Direct Support Grants Programme (DSGP) was developed in response to the immediate need for firms to retool and mitigate the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Caribbean Export has allocated funds for CARIFORUM firms, to be dispersed as grant funding in 2022. This funding is provided by the European Union under the 11th EDF Regional Private Sector Development Programme.

CARIFORUM firms can receive a non-reimbursable grant valued between €10,000 – €30,000 to implement approved projects.

Please note that the DSGP Application form has been updated to comply with 2021 requirements. Only applications submitted using the updated application form will be eligible for consideration. Firms must therefore ensure that they download and complete the updated form ( filename: DSGP-Application-Form-Nov 1).

Please submit two (2) copies of your application package in hard copy via courier or hand delivery to Caribbean Export Headquarters in Barbados by December 8, 2021 at 4:30 pm (AST).

Caribbean Export apologises for any inconvenience caused.
