Farms, businesses and community groups are invited to submit applications to the LEADER grant scheme which aims to boost East Leicestershire’s rural economy and create jobs.
The scheme reopens for expressions of interest today (Thursday 1st February)
LEADER, part of the European Union’s Rural Development Programme, was launched locally in 2015 to support rural business to diversify and grow across Melton and Harborough, as well as parts of Charnwood and Blaby. Grants are available from £7,500 up to £75,000 across all priorities. Applicants have until Monday 30th April to make expressions of interest for projects that increase farm productivity or diversification, support small and micro businesses, boost rural tourism, provide rural services, provide cultural and heritage activity or increase forestry productivity.
Guidance for applicants can be found on the East Leicestershire LEADER website: open-calls.html
