£3.7 million available for projects

On Tuesday 16 May, a workshop will take place at The Venue, Grantham Road, Navenby, showcasing EU funding opportunities for micro, small and medium-sized rural enterprises in the Greater Lincolnshire area.

Among the funding programmes to be discussed is the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, which is making £3.7 million available for projects focused on food processing, business development and tourism.

There will also be a chance to learn more about the LEADER programme, which is designed to support the following national priorities:

  • Increase farm productivity
  • Support micro & small businesses and farm diversification
  • Boost rural tourism
  • Provide rural services
  • Provide cultural and heritage activities (where this promotes growth in the tourism economy)
  • Increase forestry productivity

So far this year, the LEADER programme has granted £961,768 to 22 local businesses across the county, and there is still £4,715,756 of funding available.  

The event runs from 10.30am – 12.30pm (registration opens at 10.15am). Places can be booked online.
