Wash Fens Rural Development Programme

The Wash Fens Rural Development Programme distributes funding across South East Lincolnshire to businesses and community groups who will make a contribution to growing the rural economy.

Local businesses, farmers, foresters and those involved in tourism, heritage and community initiatives can apply for grants to support activities that will boost the rural economy.

Don’t miss out on EU funding opportunities - LEADER funding can only be awarded up until the point we exit the EU, or until all funds have been distributed, so you are advised to apply as soon as possible.
