£7 million of LEADER Rural Development Funding has been secured to create jobs and growth in Lincolnshire’s rural economy. Lincolnshire County Council would like to invite you to attend a short information session to find out how your rural business, farm or community project could benefit from the funding.
Who should attend?
LEADER Grants can be accessed by businesses, farmers, foresters and those involved in tourism, heritage and community initiatives. The workshops are aimed at anyone who may be thinking of applying for LEADER funding as well as stakeholders, consultants, support organisations and community groups working with potential applicants.
LEADER funded activities must bring benefits to the rural economy, such as creating new jobs, growing businesses, improving productivity and efficiency, increasing tourism visitors or providing new rural services.
