Business Development- closed


Business Development grants are for capital investments that create or grow micro and small businesses in rural areas. The aim is to grow the economy of rural areas and create new jobs.

The call, which closed in May 2018, made grants available to small rural businesses, including farmers who wanted to diversify.  The funding is helping to pay for things like:

  • constructing or improving buildings
  • buying new equipment and machinery


Grants of £50,000 to €200,000 (approx £170,000) were available in Cornwall and £10,000 to €200,000 on the Isles of Scilly.
