Understanding FETF 2024 Grants

FETF 2024 grants cater to diverse needs within the agricultural sector. You can apply for more than one grant, tailoring your selections to suit your business requirements. However, it’s important to note that FETF 2024 is competitive, and the funding you receive may vary based on the strength of your application.

Successful applicants can receive a grant ranging from £1,000 to £50,000 for productivity items, slurry management, and animal health and welfare initiatives.

Eligibility and Application Process

Farmers, horticulturalists, forestry owners, and contractors operating in England can apply for FETF 2024 grants. If you’ve received funding from previous FETF grants or the Countryside Productivity Scheme (CPSG), you may still be eligible.

For the FETF Animal Health and Welfare grant, eligibility extends to farmers of beef cattle, dairy cattle, sheep, pigs, and laying or broiler chickens.

However, those participating in the Lump Sum Exit Scheme are not eligible for FETF grants.

You can apply for FETF 2024 through the Farming Investment Fund service.

You can apply between 6 March and 17 April 2024 for productivity and slurry items. This application window will close at midday on 17 April 2024.

You can apply between 20 March and 1 May 2024 for animal health and welfare items. This application window will close at midday on 1 May 2024.
