Grant Funding

Both farmers and Agri Food businesses have been able to access to grants through the EU and National Government. Apart from Leader grant applications, depending on funding the schemes are now closed to new applicants.

Laurence Gould have had particular success for clients in obtaining grant funding for projects under:

  • > RDPE Growth Programme
  • > Countryside Productivity Scheme
  • > LEADER
  • > Rural Enterprise Scheme
  • > Processing & Marketing Grant Scheme
  • > ERDP Training Scheme
  • > EU Fruit & Vegetable Regime
  • > Farm & Agricultural Development Scheme (Welsh Development Agency Farming Connect)

Grant funding has been available to support diversification schemes for farmers and landowners across the UK and also to processors and cooperatives adding value to agricultural products.

In Scotland similar funding can be available through the SRDP.
