On the 27th of October 2022, the Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, announced details of the €180 million LEADER Programme for 2023-2027. The major investment will support locally-led rural development and enterprise projects over the next five years. This allocation is in addition to the €70 million already provided for LEADER for 2021 and 2022, bringing the total allocation for the seven-year programming period of 2021-2027 to €250 million.

The selection process for the new LEADER Programme will be conducted over two stages; the first stage is an ‘Expression of Interest’ by eligible groups followed by a more detailed stage which will involve the development of LEADER strategies.

Completed ‘Expression of Interest’ forms must be submitted by email to leader2327@drcd.gov.ie before 5.30pm on Friday 16th of December 2022.
