The fifth reception of applications from farmers who want to receive subsidies in advance will be organized from September 2 to November 22
According to the Agency for Interventions and Payments in Agriculture (AIPA), advance state subsidies will be issued to young farmers and women agricultural producers. Subsidies are given for the following purposes: investments in technological equipment and updating livestock complexes; investing in the purchase of domestic animals and maintaining their genetic background; investments in the development of post-harvest and processing infrastructure; investments in the production of fruits and vegetables in protected areas (greenhouses, etc.); investments for the creation of perennial plantings, including vineyards and apple orchards. As InfoMarket previously reported, according to the Regulation on the conditions and procedure for the provision of advance payments from the National Fund for the Development of Agriculture and Rural Areas, payments will be provided on the basis of investment projects submitted by farmers who first operate in the agri-food sector and are not connected with another agricultural producer. They will be able to take advantage of this financial assistance once; its maximum amount is up to 650 thousand lei. State aid can be up to 65% of the total cost of the investment project, and the remaining 35% is the contribution of the beneficiary. Subsidies will be provided in 2 tranches. The first part - 75% of the amount of the subsidy - will be provided upon signing the contract, and the second part will be transferred when the business is already started. The investment project implementation period should not exceed 24 months. After consideration and approval by the relevant commission of investment projects subject to financing, the beneficiaries will have 60 days to provide documents confirming the co-financing of the project. At least 5% of the funds will be allocated annually from the National Fund for the Development of Agriculture and Rural Areas to implement the system of providing advance subsidies. // 22.08.2019 - InfoMarket.
