Are you looking to develop your rural business? The rural economy plays a vital role in the SEMLEP area. A quarter of people live in, and a third of VAT registered businesses are based in rural areas.
Through the RDPR Growth programme, businesses can apply for grant funding to run projects which create jobs and growth in the rural economy. There are three types of grant:
- Business development
- Food processing
- Rural tourism infrastructure
Join this information workshop to get an in-depth understanding of the funding available, the funding priorities for the South East Midlands and to understand the application process.
During the event you will:
- Get a detailed overview of the three rural funding strands
- Develop an enhanced understanding of how to complete a strong expression of interest
- Understand the full funding application process
- Meet directly with SEMLEP’s EAFRD Lead to talk about your project and fit for funding requirements, including application support available
- Ask any questions you may have about the funding
