2014/15 Catchment Sensitive Farming Capital Grants Now Open (England)

The Catchment Sensitive Farming Capital Grant Scheme is open for 2014-15. The scheme provides grant aid towards the improvement or installation of facilities that would benefit water quality by reducing diffuse pollution.

The funding mechanism will allow £7.5 million in capital grants to be awarded during 2014/15. There is no minimum amount of grant per holding. Two or more holdings managed as a single unit, or in single ownership, or which to some extent have common management, financial accounts, livestock, machinery and/or feeding stores, will be classed as one holding and subject to a single grant ceiling of £10,000.

All agricultural holdings/businesses within the boundaries of the priority catchments in England will be eligible to apply for these grants. Support will be available on a first come, first served basis.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 31 March 2014.
