The application will then be assessed by the Local Action Group (LAG). These assessments are due to take place quarterly. The decision of the LAG will be made known to you immediately.
Those who are successful will then be provided with a claims pack and guidance notes on its quarterly completion.
If required, a participant monitoring form would need to be completed for each individual involved in the project. This information is important as it helps us identify who will be directly benefiting from the LEADER funded projects.
Please note that projects must show evidence of commencement within 4 months from the date of acceptance.
Applicants will be informed soon after of the LAG decision. Further quarterly submission dates will be arranged in due course and updated on this section of the site.

There may be a small amount of additional funding made available later this year but at present this is now known for sure. Further information regarding LEADER applications will be made in due course.
