A share of the Rural Development Programme money – minimum level £20,000 – is available to projects looking to create jobs and improve productivity in the rural economy, with the focus being on business development, tourism and food processing.
The application process comes in two parts, starting with an expression of interest being submitted to the Rural Payments Agency. Suitable proposals will then be invited to make a full application.
Guidance is available on the Defra website, but the small print can often be overwhelming, which is where Hobbs Parker comes in. We can support you through the application process to ensure your project is presented in the best possible way. Get in touch for a no-obligation chat.
