Rural businesses in Lincolnshire are being encouraged to access funding available to purchase equipment.
LEADER funding is available in four parts of Lincolnshire – the Coastal Action Zone, Lindsey Action Zone, Kestevens and Wash Fens.
Businesses, farmers, foresters and those involved in tourism, heritage and community initiatives can apply for LEADER funding for projects that will create jobs or growth in the local rural economy.
The call for expressions of interest is open until Sunday 9 August midnight for applications to purchase capital equipment only.
Cllr Colin Davie, executive councillor for economy and place at the county council, said: “This is a great opportunity for rural enterprises to get a boost. These four areas of our county all present challenges compared to urban areas. It’s important they are supported with employment and growth opportunities so they can thrive.”
