With many people struggling to find sales jobs and positions within other industries, the CBI has stressed the importance of schemes which help boost employment in the UK.
"We need to encourage growth throughout the UK and it is right that public money should only be spent on schemes that will genuinely help with job creation," commented Rhian Kelly, CBI director for business environment.
"The successful bids should help deliver this and are to be congratulated on the vision and scope of their pitches. It is encouraging to see so many different sectors are getting a boost."
The Regional Growth Fund will give out around £1.4 billion over the next three years to projects and programmes which have the potential to stimulate economic growth in the private sector.
Bidding on the second round of funding opened on April 12th and will last until July 1st 2011.
