RDPE Growth Programme & Funding Information Workshop
The Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) Growth Programme has opened a new call under the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD).
Rural businesses across D2N2 can benefit from a further guaranteed £35 million worth of funding to create new jobs, boost tourism, and unlock growth in rural areas.
The new call will provide grants of between £20,000 to £750,000 for rural businesses to construct or improve buildings, purchase new equipment and machinery to grow their business or open up opportunities for tourism.
There are 3 types of grant:
- Business development
- Food processing
- Rural tourism infrastructure
More information on the Rural Development Programme can be found here (opens in new window).
To support rural businesses across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire to make the most of these opportunities the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership will be holding a workshop in Chesterfield.
There will also be an opportunity to meet rural advisers on how to complete high quality applications to the RDPE. The workshops are free to attend.
The workshops will be an opportunity for rural businesses to find out more about the funding opportunities and receive support in making high quality applications to the Rural Development Programme.
This project is part-funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 in England.
