LEADER RDP Funding Information Evenings

The new LEADER EU Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014-2020 programme is now open in Mayo. LEADER is a community-led, local development initiative promoting social inclusion, poverty reduction, economic development and environmental initiatives in rural areas.

Individuals, community groups and small businesses can apply for funding to deliver projects that address these objectives.
Moy Valley Resources IRD and Mayo North East are hosting a series of LEADER  information meetings over the coming days. We will present information about the new LEADER programme, and Expression of Interest (EOI) forms will be available. You will have an opportunity to meet with a project officer or to arrange a further meeting.

Everyone is welcome to attend and we would ask you to please forward this information to anyone who may be interested in hearing more about funding opportunities for their business or community.
