Farmers, woodland owners and forestry contractors in the Marches can apply for grants under the Countryside Productivity Scheme.
The Countryside Productivity Scheme is part of the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE). It’s administered by the Rural Payments Agency (RPA).
A grant may cover up to 40% of the total eligible costs of the project. There are 2 types of grants: small grants and large grants.
For small grants, funding of between £2,500 and £35,000 is available.
One small grant can be used to apply for a range of small grant items. For large grants, funding of between £35,000 and £1,000,000 is available.
Applicants can apply for a mix of large grant items in one application.
Applications can only be for large grant items or small grant items – not a mix of both.
