Regional Grant Schemes
Regional environment adviser Andrew Stephenson has produced this useful list of regional funding opportunities for local farm businesses.
His advice on making an application is to look at eligibility criteria carefully before proceeding and discuss project ideas with scheme administrators in advance. With application windows often being quite short, he advises applying as soon as practicably possible, tailoring your application to the scheme’s stated priorities.
Bear in mind that most grant applications begin with an initial expression of interest followed by a more detailed proposal. Remember too that generally speaking, the larger the grant, the more involved and lengthy the application process.
