EUROPEAN AGRICULTURAL FUND
FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT (EAFRD)

The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) is aimed at improving competitiveness in the agriculture and forestry sector, safeguarding and enhancing the rural environment and fostering competitive and sustainable rural businesses and thriving rural communities.

The EAFRD is now fully committed and closed to bidding. Plans for future funding specifically for economic growth in rural areas may feature in the Government’s proposed UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
