If you are a rural business in England, and would like to apply for the latest round of the RDPE Growth Fund, then an Expression Of Interest form needs to be submitted to the RPA by midnight on 16th February 2020 – this may sound like a while away, but it is less than 12 weeks.

A minimum of £20,000 per grant is available, normally at 40% of the project cost. The maximum grant varies, however, for Cumbria the maximum us £175,000 (£437,500 total project cost). Bear in mind that different areas of England will have different grant funding priorities.

The full guidance can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/rdpe-growth-programme which includes the Expression of Interest form and all other information required.
