Apply for LEADER funding

Page updated on: 08/06/2021

The LEADER programme, which aims to support the regeneration of rural Carmarthenshire, will open a series of calls throughout the programme period.

LEADER is designed to get local people, businesses and communities involved in delivering sustainable, innovative solutions to address some of the economic, social and environmental challenges facing rural Carmarthenshire. The Local Action Group - Grŵp Cefn Gwlad is managing the LEADER programme in Carmarthenshire.

This project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.

A new application window is currently open and will close on Wednesday 30th June 2021.

We advise that you discuss your project idea with an officer before submitting an application. Please e-mail for officer support.

New projects will need to complete by the end of September 2022 at the latest, with the earliest start date likely to be September 2021. Based on this, we would expect to see projects requesting no more than £25K of RDP funding. Should applications exceed this amount they will be assessed on the strength of the proposed project and the likelihood of being able to spend to profile and complete in time.
