REMINDER - Deadline for Malvern Hills Rural Fund is fast approaching

Malvern Editorial 10th Nov, 2023   0

THE DEADLINE to apply for funding for your rural project is fast approaching.

Expressions of interest for Malvern Hills Rural Fund must be submitted by Monday, November 13. Shortlisted bids will then be invited to submit a full application.

The money can be used to fund physical projects such as new buildings or renovations and not for staff or day-to-day running costs.

Individual grants of between £2,500 to £25,000 are on offer, with businesses expected to match 50 per cent of the total cost of the project.

The funding comes from the Government’s Rural England Prosperity Fund and the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

On announcement of the fund, Councillor Beverley Nielsen at Malvern Hills District Council, said: “We are pleased to announce that we are now encouraging funding applications for Round two of the Malvern Hills Rural Fund.

“The fund is a great opportunity for new businesses or existing ones that have ideas for growth to access support to diversify and thrive.”
