WEST KENT LEADER GRANT PROGRAMME
RURAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME 2014 - 2020
The 2014-20 programme has now closed and a new LEADER programme will not be running due to the UK's exit from the European Union.
West Kent LEADER is a source of funding available to farmers, growers, foresters, rural businesses and communities to help secure a sustainable future for rural West Kent.
The LEADER Programme is a bottom-up, community-led approach to the delivery of the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE), which is funded by Defra and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) funds. The planning, decision making and implementation is done at a local level, carried out by a Local Action Group (LAG) which is made up of private, public and community sector volunteers with a wide range of experience and knowledge of local rural issues.
Since 2006, more than £3 million has been awarded in total to 112 projects across the West Kent area.
