How to apply

Application process

1. Email us at to check that your postcode is located within an eligible rural area.

2. If your postcode is eligible, we must check that your project fits within one of our six funding priorities.

3. We will invite eligible projects to complete an Expression of Interest form. 

4. If approved we will then invite you to submit a full application.

Please note: we have now moved to open calls with no fixed deadlines. Expression of Interest forms will be considered as and when they are received.
