Money is being made available for rural projects across the country.

The Prince’s Countryside Fund is open for grant applications from January 9 until February 21.

A total of £300,000 has been made available for rural projects from The Prince’s Countryside Fund.

The fund gives out grants twice a year, and projects in rural areas across the UK can apply for funding of up to £50,000 in the spring round of funding.

The fund aims to support projects that deliver sustainable rural assets, businesses, and services with the aim of halting the decline of the rural economy and recovery from natural disasters such as flooding or animal disease.
