Grants & Funding
The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) is responsible for the administration of a wide range of grants and subsidy schemes to support our local farming and fisheries industries. Further information about these, by scheme type, is provided below.
To help administer these various schemes, the Department has put in place an identification system to ensure that it maintains accurate records of those applying to receive EU funding. To find out more about this system and how it affects you, please click on the link immediately below:
This page will provide you with information on the Area-based Schemes that came into effect at the beginning of 2015 under EU reform of the Common Agricultural Policy.
