The Farm Business Grant is designed to help farmers in Wales to improve the economic and environmental performance of their agricultural holdings, and provides a 40% contribution towards capital investments in equipment and machinery that have been pre-identified as offering clear and quantifiable benefits to farm enterprises.
£40 million funding will be available over 4 years. The minimum grant available is £3,000, and the maximum is £12,000. Only one application will be approved per business throughout the lifetime of the Scheme.
The proposal is to open three windows in the 2017 to 2018 financial year with each open for 2 months. The first window will open in May 2017 followed by one in August 2017 and the third in February 2018.
