The programme is an experimental fund that aims to create more and better jobs in the strongholds of the Welsh language and support the growth of the language.
The Welsh Government’s Economy Department funds the Arfor Innovation Fund in four counties where the Welsh language is strongest: Gwynedd, Anglesey, Ceredigion, Carmarthen. The funding is available over the year 2020/2021. The purpose of the fund is to pilot different approaches and projects that promote entrepreneurship and business growth with a focus on promoting the use of the Welsh language. New and innovative approaches must be valued and supported. Arfor will not support projects where other grants are already available to support them.
You do not need to be able to speak Welsh to apply for help through Arfor.
Further guidelines are attached.

Language Fund – A fund to support businesses to make the Welsh Language more visible / audible within their businesse. All applicants must receive a language assessment from Menter Iaith Mon Officer.
