EVENT: Introduction to LEADER Funding (Webinar)

May 13, 2021

LEADER is a rural development programme co-funded by the EU and which operates a locally-led, bottom-up, approach to meeting the needs of local communities and businesses. The programme supports private enterprises and community groups in rural areas.

The Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys T.D., recently announced the allocation of the €70 million Transitional LEADER programme for the period 2021-2022.

This session will outline the characteristics of LEADER funding, what opportunities are available, and how organisations can access these opportunities. Topics covered will include:

  • What is LEADER funding? What has been funded in the past?
  • Transitional funding available for 2021-2027
  • Future programme priorities for 2021-2027
  • Overview of application preparation
  • Models of best practice in LEADER.

There will be two follow-on events in June which will explore the LEADER application process in more depth and offer organisations an opportunity to receive feedback on their proposals.

This event is a joint collaboration between The Wheel’s Access Europe programme and 2into3 Nonprofit Consultancy.

Access Europe is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs.
