Is my idea eligible for funding?

At the start of June 2015, the long awaited recognition as a LEADER region by the Federal Ministry for Agriculture and Forestry, the Environment and Water Resources was received and thus the confirmation of the local development strategy, which had developed into an intensive process. The hard work was rewarded with a high number of points, and this result is something to be proud of.


The LEADER Region Weinviertel Ost received the certificate of recognition from Federal Minister Andrä Rupprechter on 24.06.2015 at the launch event for the new LEADER funding period 2014-2020 at Tech Gate Vienna. The Federal Minister emphasised the outstanding importance of this programme for strong rural regions and thus a liveable Austria and he congratulated the eastern Weinviertel on the outstanding achievement in strategy development.
