This Expression of Interest (EOI) form must be completed as a pre-cursor to an application proper for funding under the Rural Development Programme 2014–2020 (LEADER). Failure to complete this form completely will result in a delay in dealing with your Expression of Interest and any further processing of any subsequent application arising therefrom for funding under RDP 2014-2020.

All Fields are mandatory and must be completed

An Expression of Interest form (EOI) is the first step in every potential LEADER application. EOI received from October 2022 onwards will be considered for the next LEADER Programme, commencing Autumn 2023.
