Funding success for forestry businesses

October 17, 2008

Yorwoods have been successful in assisting a number of forestry businesses in the region access funding through the Rural Enterprise Investment Programme. The REIP is a programme of funding available through Yorkshire Forward for targeting rural development focused projects. Funding is available to forestry businsess amongst others, for a whole host of projects including supply chain added value activity, infrastructure investments and woodfuel developments. Yorwoods has supported a number of businesses putting together buisness plans and applications to the fund. One such business was a small forestry contracting company that was looking to expand its business operations so it could take in more work but was finding it difficult to raise the necessary capital. Yorwoods helped the company develop a long term business strategy which was then used to apply for and be awarded capital funding from the programme. For details on the REIP and how to apply, follow this link to the REIP pages on the Yorkshire Forward web site
