Glastir Small Grants: Scheme overview

Land Managers and Farming Businesses across Wales have an opportunity to apply for Capital Works under the Glastir Small Grants Scheme.
 
This stand alone scheme contributes to the delivery of Welsh Government’s ambitions to tackle climate change, improve water management, restore traditional landscape features and enhance habitat linkage for pollinaters.
 
There are three themes under Glastir Small Grants:
 
Carbon – aid the delivery of Welsh Government’s ambitions to increase carbon sequestration.
Water - improve water quality and reduce the risk of flooding.
Landscape and Pollinators - maintain the traditional landscape features in Wales, and provide habitat linkage for pollinating insects.
 
Land Managers and Farming Businesses can benefit from maximum funding of up to £7,500 for capital works subject to Selection. Full details of the Selection process are explained in the Glastir Small Grants General Rules Booklet which can be accessed under the ‘Glastir Small Grants Guidance’ Section below. This section also includes the Glastir Small Grants Scheme Rules, Glastir Small Grants Terms and Conditions, Glastir Small Grants EOI ‘How to Complete’ and the Glastir  Small Grants Geotagged Photo Guidance.
 
Geotagged photographs will validate the claim showing the project location before commencements and after completion of the Capital Works. If you wish to be considered for Glastir Small Grants, you will need to submit an Expression of Interest, which is only available via the Rural Payments Wales (RPW) Online facility. 
 
If you have not registered as a Customer and RPW Online, or have not registered your land with Rural Payments Wales, you are encouraged to do so immediately otherwise you may not be able to apply. Glastir Small Grants forms part of the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme for Wales 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
