Southern Shropshire LEADER Programme

The new LEADER Programme, a funding stream introduced at the start of 2016, will bring a €2.54 million investment into southern Shropshire (including the Bridgnorth area) with the overall purpose of improving the economic wellbeing of the area through sustainable development, drawing on the area’s environmental and cultural assets and qualities.

The latest round of funding opened on Monday 4th April 2016. Outline applications (OA) will need to be submitted by 6th May 2016. If your outline application (OA) is deemed to be eligible and meets the local priorities of the Southern Shropshire LEADER programme you will be invited to the full application (FA) stage. A final decision will be made in September 2016, and if an application is successful a project funding contract will be issued. Once the contract has been signed, grant-eligible activity can commence.
