Funding for Rural Development

Funding for Rural Development

Find out more about the availability of rural funding for businesses.

Businesses in rural areas have a number of different routes to find support for their growth ambitions. Funding is still available through a range of support programmes and this event will guide you through the opportunities available.  

This workshop will highlight two EU funded programmes: DEFRA’s European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and the LEADER Programme together with details of other support available. Attendees will be able to find out the latest criteria and timeline for each programme, as well as get expert advice and guidance from the programme managers.
