Opening of Farming Recovery Fund

The government has today (9 April) opened the Farming Recovery Fund to support farmers who suffered uninsurable damage to their land due to flooding this winter. Under the scheme, eligible farmers can access grants of between £500 and £25,000 to return their land to the condition it was in before exceptional flooding due to Storm Henk.

Eligible farmers are being contacted directly by Rural Payments Agency outlining the support available to them through the Farming Recovery Fund and how they can make a claim.

The fund will initially be open in those areas where the Flood Recovery Framework has already been activated to help farms which have experienced the highest levels of flooding. Eligibility for the fund will remain under review by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to ensure it is supporting areas where farmland is most impacted.
