Eligibility – communities

Who can apply?

 

The Local Action Group is keen that the LEADER Programme should be as accessible as possible to organisations, groups of businesses, community groups, businesses and the wider public.  Applications for financial assistance will be accepted from:

  • Individuals (including self-employed)

  • Constituted community and voluntary organisations

  • Public organisations and agencies

  • Micro enterprises (including social enterprises, charities and Community Interest Companies)

  • Rural and farm businesses – for which different eligibility rules apply

The Local Action Group has determined the amount of funding that is available to community groups, and the levels of match funding that will be required. 

  • Grants are available from £5,000 to £150,000

  • Community groups may apply for up to 60% grant funding

  • Public sector organisations may apply for up to 50% grant funding

The balance of project funds should come from private or public sector (non EU) match funfding.  Further information on match funding is available here.  

The full Scottish Government guidance on eligibility will be published on the Scottish Rural Network site.
