Countryside Productivity Small Grant Scheme: Round 2 Grant Offers are being issued as we speak. Where an application to Round 2 of the Countryside Productivity Small Grant Scheme (CPSG) was submitted earlier this year, the RPA should be issuing grant offers from today (28th October 2019). Successful applicants will have until 31st May 2020 to order, receive items and submit a claim. This extended claim deadline is to avoid issues with the supply chain and successful applicants are being encouraged to contact suppliers as early as possible to ensure items can be delivered within this timescale. They should then accept the grant offer via the GOV.UK online acceptance portal by 10th November 2019. The RPA is also contacting key suppliers to inform them of this deadline.
There is to be a third application round for CPSG and that is likely to be launched at some point during autumn 2020.
Should you have any further queries or concerns then please do not hesitate to contact your local FCG office.
