Flood-hit farmers eligible for £6 million fund

The Farming Recovery Fund has extended its support for farmers devastated by recent flooding, bringing the total funding to £10 million.

 

Eligible farmers and landowners in parts of Herefordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire and North and East Yorkshire can now apply for grants between £500 and £25,000.

 

Chief executive of the RPA Paul Caldwell said: “We know the flooding in February had a devastating impact on farming communities across the North and Midlands.

 

“The RPA is working hard to ensure farmers feel supported during this time and from today eligible farmers will be able to access this fund to help them get back on their feet.”
