Rural projects are invited to apply for their share of £300,000 grant funding through The Prince’s Countryside Fund.
The fund, established by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2010, provides more than £1.2 million in grant funding to rural projects across the UK each year.
It aims to support projects that sustain rural communities, improve the viability for farm and rural businesses, and support aid delivery in emergency and build resilience.
Grants are awarded twice a year and projects can apply for funding of up to £50,000 in the spring application round, which closes on February 21.
“Our grants help to support a diverse range of projects often delivered by local organisations, such as training vouchers for young farmers, equipment for local abattoirs, overheads and staffing costs for farmer-led networks, village shops and pubs, and development schemes for rural businesses,” said fund director Claire Saunders.
