Businesses and organisations are being encouraged to bid into the £5.5million RDPE Growth Programme to boost the rural economy in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. The current calls for Food Processing, Tourism Infrastructure and Business Development are live until January 2018. Details can be found here.

In light of the calls, D2N2 Growth Hub are holding an event for rural businesses, support agencies and public bodies to find out more about the provision that is available to boost the D2N2 rural economy and an opportunity to have a one-to-one session to discuss your project plan. We’ll look at EAFRD and LEADER funding and the range of support available for rural businesses through the D2N2 Growth Hub.
