We have just received notification that the Yorkshire Dales LEADER programme is closing for Expressions of Interest on FRIDAY 16th FEBRUARY at 5pm and not in September 2018. This is because the number of “Expressions of Interest” received so far significantly exceeds their funding allocation and the likelihood of additional funds for LEADER areas experiencing high demand has reduced. This also means that full grant applications will be subject to strong competition. The deadlines for full application submissions for the next two grant panels are as follows:
- 6th March 2018 for the grant panel on 5th June 2018
- 23rd April 2018 for the grant panel on 17th July 2018
If you have already had an Expression of Interest approved we recommend you try to submit your full application by the March deadline if at all possible as the programme will be closed once they are fully spent.
