Rural Micro Business Growth Scheme – information for applicants
This scheme is administered directly by Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA).  The minimum grant support available is £5,000 and the maximum grant will be £40,000. The grants can only fund up to 50% of eligible costs (subject to the maximum £40,000). Any costs over and above this will be paid by you from private sources e.g. your own savings or a bank loan. You must therefore show that you have, or have access to, sufficient funds to pay for the project costs until the grant payment is released. Grants can only be paid retrospectively and when your project completes.

For more information, visit https://www.daera-ni.gov.uk/topics/grants-and-funding-rural-development/rural-development-grants or email

Please note that you can only apply for a grant from either the Rural Micro Business Growth Scheme or the Rural Business Development Grant Scheme.
