The WARR Partnership, covering the Wealden and Rother Districtsm said it had £450,000 to allocate under Leader RDPE funding.
While the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) fund officially closes in December 2013, the administration of the WARR programme will end on 31 July 2013.
To achieve this deadline, projects must complete their spend by the end of June 2013 and all remaining funds must therefore be fully allocated by the end of December 2012.
To be eligible for funding, new projects should help to achieve one or more of the WARR Partnership objectives outlined below:-
Objective 1: Capitalising on the High Quality of the Environment
Objective 2: Utilising the Woodland
Objective 3: Promoting Rural Tourism and Cultural Heritage
Objective 4: Diversifying Farming and Improving the Profitability of Land
