Greater Dartmoor LEAF

Greater Dartmoor Local Enterprise Action Fund 2015 - 2020

Great news, Greater Dartmoor LEAF is now open to applications! The Greater Dartmoor LEAF Programme has £2m of new funding for the Greater Dartmoor area for the period 2015-2020. The focus of this rural grant programme for Dartmoor is on the creation of jobs and growth with the main areas for support being:-

  • Farming – support for farm diversification / increasing productivity
  • Forestry – support for increasing productivity and processing
  • Enterprise – creation or development of micro and small businesses
  • Tourism / Rural Services / Cultural & Heritage activity

Your proposal will need to show how it supports delivery of these priority areas, which are set out in more detail in the Local Development Strategy for 2015-20.  Projects will also need to be within the Greater Dartmoor area, a list of parishes included can be found below.  
The programme is being managed by the DR Company, with grant decisions being made by the GD LEAF Partnership Board which consists of a wide range of public, private and social enterprise representatives.
