Grant funding for tourism projects

November 19, 2019 at 1:03 PM

Grants for rural tourism are now available in England through the RDPE Rural Growth Programme.

The Rural Tourism Infrastructure Grant offers funding up to £175,000  to fund the costs of capital expenditure on tourism infrastructure to support projects that will encourage more tourists to come, to stay longer and to spend more money in rural areas.

Examples of eligible projects might be a local council path development programme, extending a museum, investment into visitor attractions.

The grant is open to commercial businesses, non-profit organisations and community projects. 

Commercial, profit-making projects (such as a tourist attraction) can claim up to 40 per cent eligble costs, an organisation that makes some income to offset costs but is not intended to make a profit (such as small buildings for tourist information) can claim up to up to 80 per cent while non-profit projects such as a cycle path can claim up to 100 per cent.

Kathryn Williams of Davis Meade Property Consultants at Oswestry said;  “There are two stages to the application. First, you must submit an ‘expression of interest’ (EOI) form. If this is successful you will be invited to submit a full application.  The EOI must be submitted before February 16, 2020.
