The Transitional LEADER Programme came into effect on 1st April 2021 and will bridge the gap between the 2014-2020 LEADER Programme and the start of the next EU Programme in 2023.

A key focal point of the Transitional LEADER Programme will be on building capacity within communities which have not received LEADER funding to date.

The Transitional LEADER Programme will support projects in the areas of:

  • Job creation and Entrepreneurship
  • Climate Action/Environmental.
  • Digital transformation.
  • Building on existing strengths and assets of rural communities.

The transitional LEADER Programme will increase in the maximum rate of aid for enterprises and commercial projects from 50% to 75%
