ABOUT US

Mid Ulster Rural Development Partnership is the Local Action Group (LAG) for Mid Ulster.  It is comprised of social partners and elected representative from Mid Ulster District Council.

Our social partners represent private sector enterprise and wider rural community interests and have been drawn from a local action group membership base of over 290 members from across the district.

 

WHAT WE DO?

Mid Ulster Rural Development Partnership manages the delivery of a Local Development Strategy for rural areas of Mid Ulster District Council. £10.1m has been allocated to the LAG to implement this strategy through the Northern Ireland Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 – jointly funded by DARD and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
