Last chance to apply for Slurry infrastructure Grant
31st Jan 2023 / By Alistair Driver
Members are reminded that today is the last opportunity to apply for a Slurry Infrasructure grant.
The first stage of the application process is an online checker. You can find it on Defra's Slurry Infrastructure grant page.
The checker provides an easy way of establishing whether you’re eligible for a grant and how much funding you could get.
The first round will be open for applications until today, January 31.
If the scheme is oversubscribed, RPA will identify which applications have a higher environmental benefit based on the priority areas shown in MAGIC.
This will be based on location and proximity to areas where action is most needed to reduce pollution from agriculture. Those invited to make a full application will then need to submit details about their project.
Defra held a webinar to discuss the grant on December 7. You can watch a recording of it here.
While many pig producers are not eligible for this first round of grants due to the six-months storage specification, NPA chief executive Lizzie Wilson has explained why she expects more opportunities for pig producers in future rounds.
