Fund to Support England's Dairy Farmers Now Open

19 June 2020/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The Dairy Response Fund has opened for applications from eligible dairy farmers in England in need of support following the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

To be eligible, farmers need to demonstrate that they have suffered a reduction in the average price paid for their milk of 25% or more in April 2020 when compared with February 2020.

Qualifying farmers are entitled to up to £10,000 each to cover 70% of their losses across April and May incurred as a result of a drop in price, following a reduced demand for milk with the closure of restaurants, bars and cafes in recent months.

This financial support is intended to help farmers maintain production capacity and sustain their business without impacts on animal welfare.

Farmers can apply for a single payment from the fund, which will be paid out from 6 July 2020. Applications can be submitted directly to the Rural Payments Agency (RPA).

The deadline for applications is 14 August 2020.
