Welsh COVID-19 Dairy Hardship Fund to open for applications from 18th June
Further to DEFRA's confirmation of the English COVID-19 Dairy Hardship Fund opening for applications from 18th June 2020, the Welsh Government has confirmed that the Welsh fund will open on the same day.
Eligible Welsh dairy farmers need to show they suffered a reduction of 25% or more in the average milk price they received in April and May, when compared with February 2020. Up to £10,000 funding is available to cover approximately 70% of the lost income.
Farmers will need to provide their Milk Statement covering February, April and May 2020. Payments should be made within 10 days.
The application window will close on 14th August 2020.
