Welsh Government Farm Business Grants (FBS)

Important Information:

Expressions of Interest (EoI) and claims for the Farm Business Grant (FBG) are submitted through RPW Online. You are able to submit EoIs in multiple windows with a minimum £3,000 threshold per application. The maximum overall grant threshold is £12,000.

The grant provides a maximum 40% contribution towards capital investments in equipment and machinery, which have been pre-identified as offering clear and quantifiable benefits to farm enterprises.

To claim the FBG payment, you must submit:

  • a FBG claim through RPW online, using the Capital Works Claim page
  • invoices for all claimed items
  • an accountant’s letter confirming business turnover of £1m or less

If you are not yet registered with RPW Online, please refer to the Welsh Government website for the ‘how to register’ guidance or call the Customer Contact Centre on 0300 062 5004.

If you have not already done so, you must register your business with Farming Connect in advance of applying for Farm Business Grant (FBG).

Equipment available is generally for larger scale arable farming. Lobbying continues to encourage WG to include horticultural equipment in this grant fund.
