The LEADER programme is now closed and we are unable to accept any further project applications.

Alternative funding opportunities are available through the Local Action Groups and their Community Led Local Development (CLLD) Programme.  For more information about the Programme, eligibility and contact details for the CLLD team please go to:   

NB:  CLLD cannot assist with projects that relate to on-farm productivity, food and drink processing or forestry projects).

In order to achieve DEFRA's LEADER priorities and the Atlantic and Moor's strategic objectives the Atlantic and Moor LEADER LAG has set 9 specific and deliverable priorities, listed above, that will guide our grant investments and the selection criteria for projects.

At all times priority will be given to projects that deliver growth as a primary output although consideration will also be given to projects that deliver growth as a secondary output as long as this can be proved and measured.

In 2017/18 activity will primarily take the form of grants to businesses/organisations that are classified as small and micro businesses (under 50 FTEs) and grants issued will range from a minimum of £2,500 to a normal maximum threshold of £150,000.  However, larger grants will also be considered on a case by case basis where no duplication of activity planned under the EAFRD Growth Programme, Countryside Productivity and Countryside Stewardship can be demonstrated.
