The RDPE Countryside Productivity Small Grants (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 is targeted at supporting investment for specific pieces of agricultural equipment.
The Countryside Productivity Small Grants scheme Round 2 is now open.
Farmers can apply for funding towards specific items of equipment listed at Annex 3 of the Countryside Productivity Small Grants scheme Round 2 handbook.
All the items have been identified following consultation with industry groups and suppliers as helping achieve improvements in either:
- technical efficiency
- animal health and welfare
- resource efficiency, or
- nutrient management
