The Co. Roscommon LEADER Programme 2014-2020 operates on a time limited/targeted calls for applications basis. This is a two-step process.

Step 1

RLP will issue, via this website, a call for projects under a specific Theme, Sub Theme, Local Objective and Strategic Action. Applicants are invited to submit an Expression of Interest for funding in response to this call. All EOIs received will be assessed for Eligibility in Principle (i.e. eligibility under the relevant call and the LEADER Programme 2014-2020 Operating Rules and compatibility with the Co. Roscommon Local Development Strategy).
You can download a copy of the Expression of Interest here.

Step 2

Applicants whose EOIs are deemed Eligible in Principle will be invited to submit a full application for funding. Application packs, including guidance notes, will be issued and assistance with the application process will be provided. Projects will not be funded on a first come, first served basis. Instead, funding will be awarded based on a comparative and competitive assessment to projects which provide the most value and best meet the objectives of the LDS.
Only projects which are eligible under and comply in full with the LEADER Programme 2014-2020 Operating Rules will receive funding. A copy of the LEADER Programme 2014-2020 Operating Rules can be downloaded here.
