The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) funding in the EM3 LEP area supports SME business development, tourism, and visitor attractions and food and drink processing in rural localities of our geography.
The fund aims to help rural micro, small and new businesses develop, grow and create jobs in rural areas.
EAFRD is part of the Government's Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) Growth Programme.
The Rural Payments Agency have launched the next round of the RDPE Growth Programme which opened for applications on Monday 4 November 2019. The Expressions of Interest window will close on Sunday 16 February 2020.
Enterprise M3 are hosting a Rural Funding workshop to provide further information and technical assistance to potential applicants. If you would like to attend click the sign up button on the right of this page.
