The Farm Business Grant helps farmers in Wales to improve the economic and environmental performance of their agricultural holdings.

The grant 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.

£40m 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 3 windows in the 2017 -2018 financial year with each open for 2 months. The first window will open 2 May 2017 and close on Friday 30 June 2017 ,  followed by one in August 2017 and February 2018.

The capital items are specified with standardised costs. A full list of items can be seen in the guidance documentation below.

Important: The application form is available here.

Please make sure you have attended a Farming Connect Farming for the Future event to ensure you are eligible to make an application.
