leader-logo Due to delays at EU level in agreeing the new CAP regulations and the wider EU budget for the period 2021-2027, there is a gap between the 2014-2020 LEADER programme and the next EU LEADER programme.  To bridge this gap, a new Transitional LEADER Programme has been established up to the end of 2022. County Wexford has received a budget allocation of €2,012,756 for projects under this Programme which is now open to applications for funding for enterprise and community projects.
