Funding for Rural Areas (South Devon)

The South Devon Coastal Local Action Group (LAG) has re-opened for applications. The LAG funding is used to support economic, environmental and community-based projects to encourage innovation and promote the prosperity of the rural coastal area between Plymouth and Exeter. Funding of £2,500 to £100,000 is available and will normally be limited to 40% of the project’s total costs.

The focus of this next rural programme will be creating jobs and helping the rural economy to grow, with the main areas for support being:-

Farming – support for farm diversification / increasing productivity

Forestry – support for increasing productivity and processing

Enterprise – creation or development of micro and small businesses

Tourism / Rural Services / Cultural & Heritage activity

The first step is to submit an Outline Application and if successful at this stage applicants will move on to the Full Application.
