DEFRA has announced that a new funding round of between £35-£50 million is to be made available for rural businesses under the Growth Programme. This includes farmers and landowners who are interested in diversification projects.

The fund, which is now available, will have a minimum grant threshold of £20,000 and businesses will have until Sunday 16th February 2020 to submit an 'Expression of Interest' to DEFRA.

The Cheffins Rural Professional team has a wealth of experience in securing grant funding for a diverse range of projects across the region and can support clients wishing to access the fund.
