Grant Fund 'open for business'

RDPE grant funding is currently available to support projects in the Wash Fens area.  Expressions of Interest are invited and can be submitted at any time.  The temporary maximum grant rate is no longer in force and all applications will be considered.

The Local Action Group is particularly looking to support projects that will enhance the visitor experience linked to the waterways and the wash (eg facilities for boating, cycle hire, walking, fishing, food, retail,  accommodation, etc).

The LAG will also prioritise projects that have the potential to create skilled employment for local people.

For further information please contact Frances McIntyre, Local Action Group Manager on 01775 764496/07920 295150 or email :
