The Rural Payments Agency has just launched a national call for grant applications for rural tourism business development projects under the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE).
Eligible rural tourism businesses can apply for capital grants of between £35,000 and £170,000. The grant application process is administered through Local Enterprise Partnerships. The Rural Tourism Infrastructure Handbook provides further information about the scheme and lists the priorities and contact information for each LEP.
The scheme will be open for an initial 12-month period during 2017. For further information click here.
