Further to our blog in April regarding the Farm Business Grant Scheme, the Welsh Government will be opening the second window for those to apply for the scheme this month. As last time, the window will be open for two months, with a total of £40m funding available over the course of the scheme running, until 2020.

More detailed guidance has been published by the Welsh Government regarding the scheme, and can be found here.

Those looking to apply are reminded to make sure you have attended a ‘Farming Connect: Farming for the Future’ event to ensure you are eligible to make an application, as well as being registered with Farming Connect and Welsh Government Rural Payments Wales.

For more information about the scheme, please visit the Welsh Government Website.
