Changes to this year’s Stewardship schemes include the capital grant schemes being merged into one application form including Boundaries, Water capital grants and a new Air Quality grant. The new Air Quality grants include funding for automatic scrapers and flooring designed to reduce ammonia emissions. These grants are also available within Mid-Tier Stewardship but, if you are only applying for capital grants, the deadline is 30th April.
For air quality and water capital grants you need to contact your CSF officer no later than 6 weeks before the deadline, ie by 19th March if only applying for capital grants. You will also need to complete this form Request for CSFO approval form 2.0.doc. For information about all the Stewardship Schemes Click here.
