2017 North West Flooding Scheme

In April 2021, Agriculture Minister Edwin Poots MLA also announced a £3.45 million Support Scheme for farmers impacted by flooding in the North West in August 2017.

Farm businesses based in the North West who made a Force Majeure application for damage to land following the flooding in 2017 will be eligible to apply for the scheme. Payments will be capped at approximately £106k per farm business, and the amount of payment will depend on the individual impact of the flooding on that business.

The scheme will be open for applications in summer 2021. Further information will be published in due course.
