The third tranche of the Tier 1 grant scheme opened for applications on Monday with applications to be in by 4pm on Friday 4 December 2020. The list of eligible machinery and equipment has been revised by DAERA and 210 items are available for grant funding from the £7.5m budget.

There are 17 more items listed this time when compared to the second tranche in January 2018. The difference is mainly due to some slurry spreading equipment being subdivided into more specific items. One of the few pieces of equipment to drop off the list in the third tranche is zero grazers.
