Rural business grants
Expressions of interest were open for rural businesses across Chorley to apply for grant funding through the Rural England Prosperity Fund (REPF) until October 6, 2023.
Chorley Council was awarded funding from the Government's Rural England Prosperity Fund to help supercharge growth and create employment opportunities for the borough's rural areas. A total of £400,000 was allocated to support new and existing rural enterprises and initiatives such as farm diversification, projects to boost rural tourism, and community infrastructure projects including renewable energy and net zero.
The fund is managed by Lancashire County Council on behalf of Chorley Council. For information, businesses should email email@example.com
