capital grant

LEADER 2015-2021
LEADER is a Capital grant fund that could fund farmers, growers, foresters, other local rural businesses and rural community organisations to help create jobs, develop rural businesses and support the rural economy. The LEADER priorities are:
Increasing farm productivity in ways which enhance natural capital;
Developing sustainable micro and small enterprises and farm diversification;
Building rural tourism making the most of Shropshires assets;
Improving rural services to support business growth and development;
Enhancing the natural, cultural and heritage attractions of the area;
Increasing woodland and forest productivity in ways which enhance natural capital.

If you are a local rural business with a project that requires a capital grant which may meet one of the above priorities then you may be eligible for LEADER!

If you're interested in finding out more about the programme, or would like to discuss a potential project, please contact the LEADER programme manager (contact details on bottom of email) to ascertain if the idea is suitable to make an application for LEADER funding. If the project is seen to meet the LEADER requirements you'll be sent an outline application form to complete and return. More information can be found in the Southern Shropshire LEADER Handbook.
