Rural Business Development Grant Scheme
The Tackling Rural Poverty and Social Isolation Programme’s (TRPSI) Rural Business Development Grant Scheme aims to support the sustainability, survival and development of micro rural businesses across Northern Ireland by providing a small capital grant for the business. The TRPSI Programme is funded by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, and this grant Programme is administered and managed by local Councils.
This is a capital grant scheme to support the purchase of new capital items or activities including equipment, machinery and building works, which cost at least £1,000 and no more than £20,000.
