Significant regional disparities and overall unfavourable situation in rural areas were the main reasons for more attention devoted to the rural areas and its development. One of the ways how the situation can be improved is trough strengthening of cooperation and partnership using the implementation of LEADER program. This program considerably contributes to promotion of “bottom up” approach; however, its implementation causes numerous difficulties to the regions mainly of financial and institutional nature. The paper focuses on identification of these problems in the environment of the Local Action Group Malohont.
