Capital SchemeThe Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs is giving farmers and growers more time to submit Tier 2 applications for the Farm Business Improvement Scheme – Capital. Recognising that Tier 2 applications will be for larger-scale transformational projects that require some time and commitment to complete, the closing date for Tier 2 applications has been extended to 4.00pm on 10th March 2017. This extension will allow farmers and growers who are currently working on their applications extra time to complete them, in particular their business plans.
In addition, it will allow applicants to fully engage with their banks/lending institutions and work towards meeting the additional supporting information or permissions required for the application process.
