The third, and final, round of the Government’s Countryside Productivity Small Grants scheme (CPSG) is now open and accepting applications. Round three sees £25million made available to support farm business investment.
Farmers will have until midday on 4th November to make an application to the Rural Payments Agency.
The CPSG scheme is designed to financially assist farming businesses who are looking to invest in new and innovative equipment to increase efficiency, productivity and sustainability. Under the scheme farmers can apply for grants between £3,000 and £12,000 per business.
The full list of items that the scheme can fund can be found here.
Farmers who have been successful in applying for grants in previous rounds of the scheme will also be able to apply for different pieces of equipment within this final round up to the scheme’s limit of £12,000 per farmer, meaning that they can streamline other elements of their business or start the move towards farming more sustainably.
If you have any questions about the scheme or would like support in applying for the grant then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
