The Rural Payments Agency has launched its final grants funding opportunity for rural businesses (See https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/rdpe-growth-programme). Worth around £35m this national call offers rural businesses the opportunity to apply for grants between £20,000 - £175,000 in the following 3 areas:

  • Food processing
  • Business support
  • Tourism Infrastructure

These grants are for capital investments that create or grow micro and small businesses in rural areas. The aim of this call is to grow the economy of rural areas and create new jobs. Experts will be on hand to take you through the application process as well as offer an insight into the type of business support our local Business Growth Hub can offer.

The event will be held on Monday 13th January 2020 at Melton Borough Council Offices from 9.30am - 11.30am.
