BUSINESS GRANTS AVAILABLE
Grants Still Available for Businesses in Rural Areas, including New Forest, southern Test Valley and southern Wiltshire.
The EU’s New Forest LEADER grants can be used to fund investment in certain types of buildings, equipment and machinery to help small businesses grow and/or create jobs. However the scheme is due to end in 2019, so businesses are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
LEADER can grant fund up to 40% of the investment cost (for commercial projects) up to a maximum grant amount of £75,000. The minimum grant amount you can apply for is £5,000.
Visit the New Forest LEADER website at www.newforestleader.org.uk for information on what LEADER can fund and how to apply.
