Rural Business Grants Programme

Share  

The Rural Business Grants Programme delivers grants to rural Small or Medium Sized
Enterprises (SME) in the Rother and Wealden district areas. This grant is not open to businesses


located in Bexhill, Polegate and Stonecross.
Businesses can apply for grants of up to 50% of the cost of capital projects. The programme will be divided between two separate pots of funding:


• Small Grants - Grants from £2,500 up to £15,000.
• Large Grants - Grants from £15,000 up to £50,000.


Capital projects could include farm diversification projects outside of agriculture, property
adaptations, creation and expansion of rural leisure and tourism businesses, new equipment machinery and commercial vehicles.


This programme will run until December 2024, or until the grant pot has been spent.
The programme is funded by the UK Government as part of the Rural England Prosperity Fund through allocations received by Rother District Council and Wealden District Council. It is delivered by East Sussex County Council. For full details of project eligibility, please visit: www.eastsussex.gov.uk/ruralbusinessgrants
