Bolsover District Council and the BNED LEADER team are holding masterclass drop in sessions to support applications for the grant funding.

BNED Leader Local Action Group has been awarded approximately £1.3m of European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) for the funding of projects that create jobs and growth and support productivity.

Grants of between £3,500 and €200,000 for up to 40% of project costs are available for farmers, small and micro businesses, community groups and organisations in the Bolsover and North East Derbyshire eligible areas.

Come along to discuss your project ideas, find out how to apply, and gain support with your application. A quiet space will be provided if you wish to use the drop in as an opportunity to work on an ongoing application, away from your normal day to day routine.

We will be on hand to give help and advice with completing the full application or EOI forms.
