What is the Farming Recovery Fund?

The Farming Recovery Fund provides money to help farmers whose agricultural land has been affected by flooding. The money will go towards the costs of restoring their land to productivity as quickly as possible.

The money comes from the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) and the scheme is administered by the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) on behalf of Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

The pages in this collection give more information about the current Farming Recovery Fund, as well as other related information.
