Rural England Prosperity Fund

The Rural England Prosperity Fund is an addendum to the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. It aims to support activities that specifically address the particular challenges rural areas face.

It succeeds EU funding from LEADER and the Growth Programme which were part of the Rural Development Programme for England. Nationally, a total of up to £110 million is available for financial years 2023 to 2024 and 2024 to 2025.

Huntingdonshire District Council has been allocated a total of £957,788, of which £350,000 has been allocated to support the growth of rural businesses.
