The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) funding in the Coast to Capital LEP area supports SME business development, tourism, and visitor attractions and food and drink processing in rural localities of our geography.



The fund aims to help rural micro, small and new businesses develop, grow and create jobs in rural areas.


EAFRD is part of the Government's Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) Growth Programme.


There are no open calls for this fund at present. This page will be updated if any future funds become available.
