Environmental Report Grant
The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine will pay a grant, as an interim measure, if a report from an ecologist or archaeologist is submitted as part of an application. This grant will be paid at Form 2 stage, which is when payment is made for trees planted.
No additional application is required as the process is automated in the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.
An additional €450 will be paid for the first hectare, €400 for the second hectare, €350 for the third hectare and €50/ha thereafter to a maximum of 20 hectares (i.e. maximum grant payable: €2,050).
A supplementary payment will be made for files already paid in 2022 where an environmental report was submitted.
