East Leics LEADER

Open for all priorities with grants available between £7,500 and £75,000

East Leicestershire LEADER is looking for projects that will contribute to achieving the local priorities and boost the economy of the area. In all cases projects must show they provide economic growth. Examples of this could be:

  • Creating jobs
  • Bringing additional visitors to the area
  • Benefitting other local businesses

When preparing an application you should think about what outputs can be achieved as a direct result of the project.

Applications can be made by farmers, growers, foresters, other local rural businesses and rural community organisations who are in the East Leicestershire LEADER area. They can be:

  • private businesses;
  • public organisations;
  • voluntary organisations; or
  • someone who wants to start a business.

NB: LEADER East Leicestershire – small businesses and communities can apply in the rural areas of Melton, Harborough and some parts of Charnwood and Blaby.
