The (LEADER) Programme 2014 – 2020 in Kerry area is accepting applications for funding on a ‘Rolling Call for Applications Applications’ basis.  This means that Promoters can make an application for funding at any time.

The call is spread across all themes /sub-themes.  The Call for Expressions of Interest has been widely publicised through Local Development Companies’ websites, information meetings and in the local media.

The application process involves the following:

  • An Expression of Interest stage is the first step in a call for applications so as to identify potential applicants and ensure that all potential applicants can be supported in developing an application.
    The Expression of Interest stage determines the Eligibility of a project in relation to the Programme rules.
  • The EOI stage will be followed by completion of a full Application Form, which can only be obtained from a Rural Development Officer.
