The NWD LEADER Programme is in full swing.  The LAG has committed £540k to 14 projects so far – projects in tourism, arable, dairy, food manufacturing,  forestry, equine, heritage, education and health.  There are several applications in the pipeline but there is still time to apply!  We can contract with projects up to the date we leave the EU (end of March 2019) so if you are thinking of applying please do get in touch to get the application process started.

We do not usually set deadlines for EOI submission but as we approach the end of the Programme we will need to, to ensure we have time to process applications.  Please make sure you speak to the Programme Manager to discuss timescales if you intend to apply September 2018 onwards.
