« BackMajor changes to new LEADER funding programme in Kerry

There are major changes to the new LEADER funding programme that’s due to start in Kerry in October.

Just over €10 million is available to businesses, and the community and voluntary sectors in Kerry under the new programme, which represents a 60% drop on the previous one.

Both South Kerry Development Partnership Ltd and North, East, and West Kerry Development will hold a series of public meetings in the coming weeks to advise those interested in applying for funding of the new requirements.


CEO of South Kerry Development Partnership Ltd Noel Spillane says the changes include local development companies no longer making decisions on applications.
