Rural England Prosperity Fund

Rural England Prosperity Fund

Guildford Borough Council recently received Rural England Prosperity Fund (REPF) capital grant funding and £200K is available to assist local rural enterprises this financial year.

Grants of up to £50,000 available

The REPF grants of between £2,500 and £50,000 and up to 50% of the capital project costs are available.  The REPF is designed to help small businesses, charities, and community groups in the rural areas of Waverley, Guildford and Tandridge.

What projects are eligible?

REPF grants are for capital only expenditures. This means investment in community infrastructure, building conversions, tools, equipment, machinery, vehicles or other costs which help in generating revenue and will be used on an ongoing basis.

If you are aware of a project that might qualify, please encourage them to get in touch with Surrey County Council rural prosperity. Qualifying projects could include: local economy development, local rural green tourism, farm diversification, circular economy, creation of multi-functional rural business hubs, community businesses, cooperatives, or social enterprises such as village shops and cafes.
