Rural England Prosperity Fund

Submissions will open 3 October to 30 November.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) has launched a £110 million Rural England Prosperity Fund to support rural communities and economies as an extension of the UKSPF.  It replaces the European LEADER programme and has greater flexibility, enabling the funding of programmes such as rural micro businesses, rural circular economy projects, conversion of buildings and rural tourism.
