OPEN FOR BUSINESS
The Somerset Levels and Moors Local Action Group is pleased to announce the launch of the new LEADER Programme with a £1.4m grant pot available for businesses, farmers, foresters and rural organisations across the Levels and Moors over the next five years.
We are now in a position to issue Outline Applications so if you have a project in mind please get in touch.

LEADER funding is EU money that is allocated via DEFRA for more information take a look at the EU Comission's rural development website.

Following formal sign off by the Rural Payments Agency, the Somerset Levels & Moors LEADER Programme is now able to take applications from businesses, farmers, foresters and community groups looking for support for their projects.
The project will need to fit within the National Priorities and also demonstrate how it will contribute to the local economy and job growth.
