Countryside Productivity Small Grant Scheme: Round 3 Now Open
The Countryside Productivity Small Grant (CPSG) scheme provides funding for farmers to purchase equipment to improve the productivity of their farm. The scheme is different to other parts of the Countryside Productivity scheme as it uses an online application process and provides grants for specific pieces of agricultural equipment.
The Countryside Productivity Small Grant scheme Round 3 is open from 7 October 2020 until noon on 4 November 2020.
Farmers can apply for funding towards specific items of equipment listed at Annex 3 of the Countryside Productivity Small Grant scheme Round 3 handbook.
All the items will help to make improvements in either:
- technical efficiency
- animal health and welfare
- resource efficiency, or
- nutrient management
Farmers (including livestock, dairy, arable and horticultural sectors) can apply for this grant. Please read the Round 3 handbook to find out more. This scheme is only open to farmers based in England.
For full guidance on eligibility and how to apply see the Government Guidance.
