Regional Selective Assistance (RSA)
Main Content


Regional Selective Assistance (RSA) is a discretionary grant for businesses who want to develop a project within an assisted area in Scotland. The amount offered depends on: 

  • The size of your business
  • The location of the project 
  • Our assessment of how much is needed for the project to go ahead

You can apply whether your business is based in Scotland or not – though the project must take place in Scotland. The project should also involve an element of capital investment and must directly result in the creation or safeguarding of jobs in Scotland. 

Large businesses which are not small or medium sized enterprises will only be eligible if the project involves ‘new activity’.

See the 'Size of your business' section on the What's involved page for more information.
