Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Ó hÓisín and assembly private secretary to the DARD minister Michelle O’Neill has welcomed the rollout of £28 million of funding under the Rural Development Programme BDG scheme.

Mr. Ó hÓisín said “The Business Development Groups scheme is funded through the new Rural Development Programme, part financed by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.”

“In these challenging times, this new programme will assist farmers in acquiring the skills necessary to help make the right decisions about their businesses for the future. Applications must be submitted before 4pm on Monday 14 December 2015. And applications will be open from Monday 9th November through the DARD or CAFRE websites.”

He added “This scheme furthers the excellent work already being carried out by the minister and Sinn Féin’s commitment to rural areas.”
