The Rural Development Programme 2007-2013, part financed by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and managed by the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, allocated funding towards village renewal and development in areas across Northern Ireland.
SWARD (South West Action for Rural Development) is the delivery mechanism for the Rural Development Programme 2007-2013 for the four District Council areas of Cookstown, Dungannon and South Tyrone, Fermanagh, and Magherafelt.
Through the Rural Development Programme, funding has been made available for the development of fully Integrated Village Action Plans and to provide financial assistance towards actions identified as high priorities by the plan, subject to eligibility.
Fermanagh District Council has contributed match funding towards the Integrated Village Action Plans. The initial selection of villages for the development of plans was undertaken by the Rural Development Council on behalf of SWARD.
Fermanagh District Council, on behalf of villages, has now applied for up to 75% funding to the SWARD programme, up to a maximum of £50,000 for each village (or cluster of villages as identified by the Rural Development Council) for assistance towards selected priorities.
Fermanagh District Council will provide match funding of 25%, up to a maximum of £16,666.
