Leader funding programme to be extended in north west

A funding allocation of over one million euro has been awarded to Sligo and Leitrim under the new Transitional LEADER Programme which will come into effect in April 2021.



Under the Programme, Sligo will receive €545,316 and Leitrim will receive €695,968.


The Transitional LEADER Programme will bridge a gap between the wind-up of the current LEADER Programme and the start of the next EU programme in 2023.



It’s hoped the programme will support job creation, support projects which address the climate agenda, and digital transformation.


Minister for state and Sligo Leitrim TD Frank Feighan says that Leader has a huge role to play in the development of businesses in the North West
