Regional Selective Assistance (RSA)

Main Content


Regional Selective Assistance (RSA) is a discretionary grant available for businesses who want to develop a project in Scotland. 

The amount offered depends upon: 

  • 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 – although the project must take place in Scotland. The project should also involve some capital investment and must directly result in the creation or safeguarding of jobs in Scotland. 

Large businesses will only be eligible if the project involves diversification at an existing location or new activity taking place on a new site.

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