LEADER Grant aid of up to 50% for capital and marketing costs is now available to niche Wexford businesses with up to 100 employees. The funding is available for start-up and expanding businesses across a range of sectors to include tourism, food, creative industries and general enterprise.
The LEADER Programme is 63% funded by the EU & 37% by the Irish Exchequer and focuses on “promoting social inclusion, poverty reduction and economic development in rural areas”.
Wexford Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) in partnership with Wexford Local Development (WLD) has responsibility for the delivery of the funding in the county under the remit of the Department of Rural and Community Development.
The grant aid is focused on key areas in need of the greatest support and provides a great opportunity for a wide range of businesses to expand.
