Do you have a bright idea that can help sustain our rural communities?

Applications for grants are being invited now for projects within Powys which will promote social inclusion, reduce poverty, and help develop and sustain our rural village communities.




Funding of up to £7,000 is available to support projects through Arwain, the county’s LEADER programme, which aims to get residents, businesses and communities involved in delivering innovative solutions to address economic, social and environmental challenges.




The deadline for applications is midnight on 5 December 2021 and any funding received must be spent by 15 April 2022.
